A Terrible Hail Storm. 

A very severe rain and hail storm 
struck Ch.iska on Sunday afternoon, 
commencing about 4 o'clock and 
lasting one half hour. Sufficient 
hail fell to completely cover the 
ground, and for a time threatened 
to be very destructive to window 
glass, howevtr no damage of any 
account occurred in this neighbor- 
hood, but we understand that many 
panes of glass were broken in resi- 
dences about East Union and other 
places in the county.

Des Moines Dispatch: J. R. Hurlbut> 
one o( the niont prominent citizens, 
of thin city, was arreatod Mon- 
day 2JtH lor iillogcii complicity 
in tho niiiriler of Constikl)lo Logan, who 
was nlain while endeavoring to enforce 
the Iowa prohibition laws. The even- 
ing of March 7 laat, Constable Loi;an )>alt- 
ed a driver for Iliirlbut llcss it Co., 
wIioImhIi) drugKista, who was delivering 
CDods to a retail honse, an<l demanded 
that he mIiow the tonniHters' permit re- 
quir-'d under the litpior laws. The driver 
►■aid it was at the store, whither he and 
liOganwent. There au altercation ensued 
between (.\in8table Logan and Joseph 
Uowp, head ateamatei for the firm, which 
ended in Lo).'an being killed. Rowe 
was arrested and held without l>ail. 
The grand jury, after a long in(iuiry 
louml a true bill against Uowo and 
also against .1. K. Ilurlbiit, one of 
the lirni. Judge (Jiven allowed bail to 
Howo in $t».Ol»(» and to Hurlbut iu$r>,000. 
Tho charge against the latter is for con- 
«|)iracy, on the theory that heinstructed his 
teamsters to arm themselves after a car 
load of beer for his lirni had been seized 
by otHcers. Hurlbut is the eon of a well 
know (."hicaifo capitalist, and last year 
married a daughter of ex-('liief Justice Cole 
ofthi.i city. The jnilictmcnts and his ar- 
rest have caused great oxcitoment. Tho 
trial promises to So aonsational ia some 
of its features. 

Althouiih the i-sue of the new silver 
certifiiates of the smaller denomina- 
tions nas ah-eady exceeded $22,000, 
t>U0, the demand for them still contin- 
ues to be fully as large as the Treas- 
ury IX^partment can supply. In no 
portion of tho coimtry is there an 
evidence of an over-supply; nor have 
the certificates sent to the interior

^[assacluHetis has long been fore-

that there are no less than l'Jl.572 
persons in the Cominoiuvealth often 
years of age or over tvho are unable to

but are confined mostly to the manu-

That college work is not injurious 
to female students, Dr. Lucy M. Hall 
says in the Po[)ular Science Monthly 
she knows from personal daily obsi i- 
vation. Yoimg women in colUge are 
in far better health than yomig wom- 
en in society, are healthier as Sen- 
iors than they were as I''re.-^liinen, and 
avei'agc fewer cabo>* of illness than are 
f-hown in men's colleges. wIuIh stntis- 
tiis show tiiat they enjoy a snmtotrd 
of 20 per cent, better health than the 

.\rqailtal of Frank Mrad. 

Frank Mead of Mandan, charged with 
the murder of Frank Farnsworth of the 
same place, at the Merchants Hotel, St. 
Paul, in September last, was acquitted at 
St. Paul after a trial of nine days, six of 
which were taken in endeavors to get a 
jury. The state was represcntetl by Attor- 
ney <;e:ieral <'lappand District .Attorney 
Kagan. Oov. Davis and W. W. Irwin were 
the counsel for Mead. 

The testimony for the defence was unex- 
pectedly strong, rspeclally in regard to 
provocations and also as raising a reason- 
able doubt whether the trigger of the fatal 
pistol was really pulled by Mead, both hav- 
ing hcdd of tho weapon at theeame time 
during the melee. 

Hut four ballots were taken by the jury. 
On the lormal ballot the verdict was ten 
for ac(|uittnl one for manslaughter and 
ojic for murder in the tirst degree. The 
two succeeding ballots two votes were lor 
a verdict of manslaughter, but on the 
ft)urth and final ballot twelve votes were 
cast for acquittal. Mr. Mead positively 
declined to be interviewed or express any 
opinion as to the trail or its result.

The following are some of the more ira- 
l)ortaiit rulingd of the secretary of war 
m.ide during March: 

The amount which is paiJ a retired en- 
listed man as commutation of rations will 
be a fair and proper charge against him for 
subsistence while in a military hospital, 
and that amount will be charged accord- 
ingly, to wit: Sergeants and corporals of 
ordnance 28 1-8 cents per day. Other en- 
listed men 18 3--i cents per day. 

When enlisted men are retained 
in service to beyond tho terms 
of their enlistments awaiting 

trial by court martial, or under sentence 
of court martial, their clothing, accounts 
and retained pay shall be compute<l at 
lifth-year rates to date of discharge, as ex- 
pressed in their flhal statements, unless 
forfeited by the terms of the sentence or by 
1.-XW-, and regulations. 

A regim<-ntal commander is restricted in 
his choice of regimental staff officers to 
those lieutenants of the regiment who are 
on duty with it, and who are not at a 
school of instruction or with the light bat-

Tlie city of Pittsburg, since the gen- 
eral use ot natiu-algas, does not thhik 
BO much of the coal itself as formerly. 
The Post of that city says: "As the 
big f^eet gO[;sdown stream with its 12,- 
000,000 bushels of coal, the people of 
Pittsburg can atlord to shed a tear of 
sympathy for the imfortimate com- 
munities which are obliged to use the 
dirty, sooty stuff for fuel" If the nat- 
ural gas gives out .some tmie, as many 
predict it will, the Pittsburganswill be 
very glad to return to their first love, 
•'dirty and sooty" as it is. 

' Fifty years ago tiie national debt 
was only §;i7,.'>l'}. in ISO,") it was 
$2,773,23.5,178. At the present rate 
of decrease the debt will disapi)ear in 
twelve years. But there is great 
danger that lavish ami e.vtravaiH t-.t 
appropriations may prolong the time 
indefinitely. And then there are n;aiiy 
people who believe "a national debt 
is a national ble.ssing." They will use 
all their inlliience and other interested 
parties will do the same, to defeat the 
earnest desire of the great body of 
the people who long for the t ime when 
the national government will be out 
of debt. 

Secretary Fairchlld has determined 
to protect claimants before the treas- 
ury department fromthee.xtortionate 
demands of attorneys. A few dny:3 
ago he ordered the cancella! ion of a 
check issued in payment of the back 
pay and bounty of a soldier which was 
held by an attorney in order to secure 
what the secretary considered an ex- 
orbitant andilllegal fee. Thesecretarj' 
then directed that a duplicate check 
be issued and sent direct to the claim- 
ant. He says that this course will bo 
adopted in all cases where the attor- 
ney asks more than fair compensation 
for his legal services. 

, The new brigadier general's career- 
Wesley Merritt— has from the first 
been a very remarkable otie. Al- 
though he graduated trom the Military 
Academy only during tho summer 
preceding the civil war, he rose before 
its close to be chief of Sheridan's cav. 
airy corps, about 10,000 strong, in 
the Shenandoah valley, and was one 
of the regular olTicers who received the 
commission of major general of vol- 
unteers lor specific services expressed 
in the wording of the commission. He 
also received no fewer than six bre- 
vets, from major up to major general, 
for gallant and meritorious services in 
specified operation.s, all between the 
battle of Gettysburg and the surrend- 
er at Appomattox. 

Mr. George I. Seney, of Brooklyn, 
N. v., has again become a very rich 
man. One of the uses to which he ia 
devoting his new wealth is the accu- 
rtiilAtion of art treasures. It will be 
remenvbered that when ^fr. Seney 
failed four years agb he gave upevery- 
thing to his creditors. His superb art 
gallery and a rich collection of family 
silver were not si)ared. Mr. Seney at 
52 began life again and in four years 
has made another great fortune. He 
uses his money now as liberally as he 
did in the days of his former prosper- 
ity. The other day he donated to 
the Metropolitan museum of art $-40,- 
000 worth of American and foreign 
paintings. Now he is exhibiting his 
private gallery and gives the proceeds 
to charity. The collection ia large

I have examined with much care and In-' 
terost the questions involved in the cou- 
llicting claims of Guilford Miller and the 
Northern Pacific Railroad company to 
certain public lands in Washington Ter- 
ritory. The legal aspects of tho case have 
been examined and passed upon by several 
ofllcers of the government, who do not 
agree in their conclusions. Miller claims 
to be a settler upon the land in question, 
whoso possession dates from 1H7H. Ho 
alleges that he has made substantial 
impruvement upon this land and 
cultivated the same, and it appears that 
he filed his claim to the same under the 
homestead law on Dec. 28, 18hl. The 
railroad company contends that this land 
is within tho territory from which it was 
entitled to select such a <iuantity of public 
land as might bo necessary to supply any 
doliciency that should 1)0 found to exist in 
the specified land menticmed in a grant by 
tho government to said company in aid of 
the construction of tho road — such deficien- 
cy boingcontcmplated as likely to arise from 
the paramount right of private purchase, 
and Bottlers within tho territory embrac- 
ing said granted lands, and that the land 
in dispute was thus selected by tho com- 
pany on Dec. ly, 1883. A large, tract in- 
cluding this land, was witlulrawn by an 
order of the interior department from sale 
and from pre-emjjtion and homestead en- 
try in 1872, in anticipation of the con- 
struction of said road and a deficiency in 
its granted lands. In 1880, upon tho fail- 
ing of a map ot definito location of the 
road, the land in controversy and that 
which had been so withdrawn was found 
to lie outside ot the limit which in 
eluded the grante<l land; but its with 
drawal aud reservation from settlement 
and entry under our land laws were con- 
tinued upon the theory that it v«as within 
the limits of indemnity lands which might 
be selected by the company, as provided 
by the law making the grant. 


in this controversy turned upon the valid- 
ity and effect of the withdrawal and selec- 
tion of the land and the continuance 
thereof. The attorney general is of tho 
opinion that such withdrawal and 
reservation were at all times effectual, and 
that they operated to prevent Miller from 
acquiring any interest or right to tho land 
claimed by him. With this interpretation 
of the law. and tho former orders and ac- 
tion of the interior department, it will be 
seen that their effect has been the with- 
drawal and reservation since 1872 of 
thousands, if not millions, of these lands 
from the operation of the land laws 
of the United States, thus placing them 
beyond the reach cf our citizens desiring, 
under such laws, to settle and make 
homes upon the same; and this has been 
done for the benefit of a railroad 
company havine no fixed, certain or defi- 
nite interest in such lands. In this manner 
the beneficient policy and intention of the 
government in relation to the public do- 
main for all these years has to that extent 
been thwarted. There seems to be no 
evidence presitnted showing how much if 
any ot this vast tract ip necessary for the 
fulfillment ot the grant to the railroad 
company, nor does there appear to be any 
limitation of the time wherein which this 
fact should bo made known and the corpo- 
ration is obliged to make its selection. 
After a lapse of fifteen years this large body 
of the public domain is still held in reserve 
to the exclusion of settlers for tho conven- 
ience of a corporate beneficiary of the gov- 
ernmeut and awaiting its selection, though 
it is entirely certain that much of thl^ ro- 
sorved land can never be honestly claimed by 
said corporation. Such a cundition of the 
public lands should no longer continue. So 
far as it is tho result of executive rules and 
methods they s^iould be abandoned, and 
so far as it is a course of improvident laws 
these should be lepoaled or amended. Our 
public domain is 


the earnest of our growth and the heritage 
of our people. It should promise limitless 
developement and riches, relief to a crowd- 
ing populace and homes to thrift and in- 
dustry. These inestimable advantages 
should be jealously guarded and a careful 
and enlightened policy on the part of tho 
government should secure them to the 
people. In the case under consideration I 
nsBumo that there is an abundance of land 
within the area which has been reserved for 
indemnity in which no citizen or settler has 
a legal interest for all purposes of such in- 
demnification to this railroad company, it 
its grant has not already been satisfied. 
1 understand, too, that the selections made 
by such corporations are not complete and 
effectual untfl the same have been approv- 
ed by the secretary of the interior, or un- 
less they are made in the words of the 
statute under his direction. You havothus 
far taken no action in this matter and 
it seems to me that you aro in a condition 
to deal with the subject in such a manner 
as to protect this settler from hardship. 
I transmit herewith the documents and 
papers rela' to the case which were sub- 
mitted to me at my rcijuest. I suggest you 
exercise the power and authority you have 
in the iiremises upon equitable considera- 
tions with the presumption and intention 
in favor of the settler, and in case you find 
this corporation is entitled to select any 
more of these lands than has been already 
accjuired, that you direct it to select in 
lieu of the land which Miller has selected 
other lands withii. tho limits of this indem- 
nity reservation on which neither he nor 
any other citizen has in good faith settled 
or made improvements. I rail your atten- 
tion to sections 245 and 241 of thelA-ised 
Statutes as pointing out a mode of proced- 
ure which may be resorted to if necessary 
for the purpose of reaching a just and equ- 
itable disposition of the case. The sugges- 
tions herein contained can, I believe, be 
adopted without disregard or calling in 
question the opinion of the attorney gener- 
al upon tho purely legal propositions which 
were submitted to him. 

Yours truly, 
Grover Ci.ev bland. 

Letter from Ro«roe Conkllng. 

At the ban(iuet of the American Club ol 
Pittsburg, commemorating the sixty-fifth 
anniversary ot the birth of Gen. Grant, 
27th ult.. a letter of regret was read from 
ex-Senator Conkling, in which he said: 
Reasons which for several years have im- 
pose<l abstinence in all cases trom political 
and other public occasions compelled me 
to state my inability to bo present. I 
must deny myself tho pleasure. To 
join in paying honor to the memory 
of a man so illustrious and so true to bis 
country and his friends, so firm-set, so 
calm and enduring under calumny, suffer- 
ing and sorrow, would be a mournful and 
grateful privilege. 1 should feel at homo 
in doing so with those who did not wait 
for the glorification of his death to show 
them the rugged granducr of Grant or the 
honesty of his purpose and his reverence 
for the rights of every fellow creature. "The 
armies have disbanded — never, I trust, to

is merely a device to bring the reader 
back into the world of souse. The 
poet places the under world -the world 
of new forces — squarely before you. 
You enter it, and then are set back in 
your own "couutree." The story is 
told by one who has been there. It is 
true. The effect is produced by num- 
berless cumulative touches, all of wiiicli, 
ill the true ballad manner, are subordin- 
•ate to the narativo, which is of .such 
novelty and power that we feel in licar- 
ing it some of the strange uneasiness 
thataftects animals on the. approach of 
an eclipse. Kxpericuce fails. All our 
knowledge we supposed was b.ased on 
experience. Here is a new sort of 
knowledge not based on experience. 
There is nothing comparable to the 
"Ancient Mariner, unless it be the ter- 
ror ot certain strius of music. Some- 
thing elemental throbs and trembles 
within us — tho solid ground of experi- 
ence may yawn and let us down to un- 
known depths, where the lirmiiess of 
the human sonl is naught, where cour- 
age is dissolved, and will is powerless. 
The ideal q i.ality of the "Ancient Mar- 
iner" is shown by the fact that It can 
not be illustrated. Dore, a master of 
gloom, of the sinister perspective of 
black masses, is powerless to represent 
the phantom ship. His prints above 
Colleridge's verse merely spoil the 
lini's, destroy the illusion, or rather 
throw it up into the real world of bark- 
rigged ships with wooden masts and 
figure heads, solid, anil displ.acing so 
many tons. The "Ancient Mariner" is 
the only poem which can never be il- 
lustrated. Coleridge called a painting 
"the intermediate .something between 
a thought and a thing;" but this poem 
lies on the other .side of thought, in 
the region of the sub conscious. 

In thus stepping boldly outside the 
world of the senses Coleridge was a 
great poet, a creator, an idealist. No 
poet now attempts to do more than 
describe what he has seen or beard, 
jierhaps to moralize on it, or to invest 
it with a certain relation to the spiritu- 
al world. In a word, modern pools 
are realistic, fanciful and charming, 
perhap.s, but always purposive. Shel- 
ley, too. possesses this power, but Col- 
leridge made by far tho easier llight. 
Shelley has most noed of artilioial sup- 
ports, deals in negations — shadowless, 
inessential figures floating in dim va- 
por — the conventional apparatus of the 
ghostly world. The number of adjec- 
tives beginning in un and dis that Shid- 
ley uses is remarkable. But Colleridgo 
places tho scene stpiaro before you — no 
dim vapors pass across the foreground. 
The phantom ship drives across the 
sun, you see that it is a skeleton ship— 

And strai^rht the sun was flecked with bars. 
Heaven's mother send us grace! 

A8 if throu?h a duntreon grate he jieered, 
With broad and burning face. 

The poet seizes instinctively on the 
striking points, as a good narrator 
does in describing what he ' ii.\s seen. 
But the sense of an underlying, allpor- 
suasive, mysterious force is as eminent 
in the real ocean where the mariner's 
ship floats idly as in the, inter- 
stellar spaces where Queen ^lab takes 
the spirit of lantlie. More so, indeed. 
Coleridge places •lie supernatural 
world apart — he does not disclose its 
relations to the natural, he does not 
depict the supernatural forces embod- 
ied in the real, as Shakspeare does in 
"Macbeth;" nor can he pass from the 
supernatural to the real with the su- 
preme ease of the great master, for 
with Coleridge the supernatural, for 
the time, closes in on and shuts it the 

Do yon say what is the 01 :hese 
"fairy stories" when to learn a little 
of the world of the sen.?es life is all too 
short? I can only s.ny as an educa- 
tional influence they seem to me to 
have a far wider function than the mod- 
ern realistic and scicntilic literature, 
which is addressed to sharpening the 
observation and the perspective powers 
which cases us in as with a shell, and 
are the master gloom of all our dark- 
ness. There is nothing more nccesary 
to mental health and balance, as is 
shown by the eagerness of healthy 
children for nutriment to the imagina- 
tion, than the cultivation of the more 
obscure parts of the imagination. It 
may not comluce to success in business, 
but it conduces to sanity. When 
thought is held entirely within the lim- 
itations of the natural and positive, im- 
agination t^kea a terrible revenge. A 

];v;cular and distressing form of in- 
sanity awaits the posterity of the men 
and women to whom the things of the 
world are the only subject of thought 
Fungi grows in the dark, unconscious 
recesses •f minds never illuminated by 
the weird light of the underlying world. 
When tho gods aro absent, gho.'»ts 
crowd in. The poisonous pores are 
dormant in tlio.w who laugh at the 
dreamy pout or the unpractical mystic, 
but their developeuient in the coming 
generations is certain. Dr. Maudsley, 
the great authority on alicniHin, says 111- "knows no one more likely to 
breeil insanity in bis ofl'spring than the 
intensely seltisb 111:111, and that the 
obliipie moi'al develr)pi:nieiit is more 
likely to j)redetei mine iusnii ty in the 
next generation than many forms ol 
actual mental derangement in parents." 
The whole course of his rea-soning, 
however, goes to prove that it is any 
one-sided, unbalanced developement 
of the character that is likely to entail 
this curse, not moral deformity alone.- 
Ile, of course, would not admit that 
the stern repression of the mystical 
flights of the mind would result m the 
morbid growth of the practical under- 
standing. But is not a hunger and 
thirst after the things of the unreal 
world a constituent part of the human 
spirit which must be fed with the hiirher 
expressions of music and art and poetrv; 
and is not the benumbing efl'ect ol 
practical endeavor m tiio long run as 
fatal to true menial evolution as a false, 
exaggerated supernaluaralism?"— jf'eni-

Music in California. 

if I had a young lady friend ambi- 
tious to be great in the highest element 
of culture, I would say to her "don'l

what I am saying, though I have not 
room or time to write down my reasons 
for the brief and blunt statement. I 
was in Rome with the late Gen. Miller 
when he consulted with tho great 
French surgeons at the head of the 
medical school there, about extracting 
the one ounce bullet from his eve which 
he had received when with Grant at

A Timely Thought- 

Loneliness is as often within .is with- 
out. Said the prophet who looked 
upon the desolate altars of Israel: 
•'They have killed thy prophets, they 
Iiave digged <lown thine altars, and i 
am left alone, and they seek ray life." 
(Rom. XI., 3.) And yet at that very 
time, notwithstanding the pressure of 
the dominant idolatry and the apostate 
government, God had reserved seven 
thousand men who had not bowed the 
knee to Baal, and who at the peril of 
their lives, hidden in secret places, 
were striving to maintain their integri- 
ty before God. This man Elijah, in 
the front of the battle, found himself 
alone, but he did not know of the 
hosts held in reserve, that were hidden 
in secret places, and who were waiting 
a favoniblo moment to openly declare 
themselves on the side of the God of 
truth. Many a man to-da}' deems him- 
self alone simply because he is short- 
sighted and can not .see what God is 
doing in the world around him. He 
has dreamed that the pillars of the 
earth rest upon his shoulders, and that 
if he fails everything is gone. But this 
is a strange mistake. There may be 
standing among us men we know noth- 
ing of, whose courage aud faith will 
put our doubts and unbelief to shame. 
When the disciples forsook the Lord 
and fled, or shrank or trembled at the 
sight of His cross, the honorable coun- 
selor came boldiy and begged the body 
that hung upon the cross and laid it in 
his own new loiiil). Tliero were only 
three days and three nights between 
the (hirkuess of Calvary and the light 
of resurrection life. The way from 
crucifixion to triumph is very short. 
Let i!s tre.nd tho path with firm and 
steadfast stci)s. and we shall lind thai 
He who hits gone before us all our way 
of tears and sighing shall never leave 
us nor forsake us in the time of our ex- 
treme trial, but will bring us to bo 
more than conquerors through Him 
who hath lovcil us and given himsell 
for us. 

The Alligator Industry. 

The business of catching and killina 
alligators gives occupation, it is stateil 
in a St. Lonis pajicr. to many persona 
in the South. Tho hide of a larg« 
alligator is worth from !?2 to .?.'>. It is 
almost n day's to skin a large one. 
Alligator oil (wliicli has at first a luosl 
nupleasaut smell) is much valued :is s 
remedy for rheuniali.-^in. Fishermen 
sometimes eat jtorlions of the animal's 
body. Tlic flesh of tho tail when cook- 
ed, is said to be like veal in look and 
like pork in taste. 

Col. Williams, some time ago, mado 
a contract with a fisherman to stock a 
hole at Spanish Fori, known as the 
alligati>r pond, for him, and in a fort- 
night be had it stocked with thirty 
alligators, ranging from six inches to 
seven or eight feet. The mode of cap- 
ture, in which the men showed no fear, 
was as follows: Some of the young 
arc caught out fioin where the old on« 
is lying, and a strong noose is placed 
so that she must thrust her head in i| 
in emerging. 

W'licn all is ready, the young are al- 
lowed to cry out, the old one api)ears. 
and is caught in the noose. She is then 
dragged around in the water till ncarU 
choked, when another noose is secured 
to her tail, and she is hrmly strapped, 
stomach downward, on a wide board. 
Her head is then fastened to thi' bo:it, 
the noose around her neck is removed, 
and she is towed away after her young 
have been placed in the skiff'. 

Young ones are bought by dealers 
from §■_' to $1 a dozen, ii not' over a 
foot in length. They fetch a much 
higher price when retailed, :u5 they are 
liard to k(!ep alive. There s an increase 
in the .selling i-ricc of fifty cents to .*1 
for every additional foot o\er a certain 
length. Alligators sixleen or oigliteen 
i inches long arc often fouml by dozens 
in sh.illow water, and they may Ije 
handled without trouble, proviiled the 
old on;> do-js not take alarm. Most ali- 
gaUn-fisliors arc iisicdly turtlc-huntera 
as we'l, puliingout liie" animals with « 
hooked polf, — (I oldci Da'j^. 


Where AVasblngton \>'orshlp«d and 
Wa* a Vestryman. 

After a delightful drive through 1 
flnely-woodcd and well cultivated coun- 
try I arrived at I'ohick church, in Vir 
giuia, regarde<l with so nuich reverenc* 
by Americans, as it was here tliat tot 
many years that Gen. Washingtor 
worshiped. The sexton unlocked th» 
large gate of the eiiclosnro. The site ol 
the church was selected by Washingtoi 
on account of its central position, an< 
its jiroxiaiity to Mount Vernon. Th« 
contractor was Mr. Daniel French. I( 
was begun in 17»j'J and finished in 1772. 
The bricks were made in '.he county, 
aijil the Klon»; was brou;^it from tlit 
Isle of Wight. Tho buil*/ ng was 6«i 
feel in length by LO in y idtli and the 
walls were "2^) feel in Iv ght. The en 
tire cost was £877 st 'rl ig. The monej 
for the payment was ra sed by taxation. 

The walls appear to have been brok- 
en, as the repairs have Ijcen m.ade of 
new bricks. The church has an anci- 
ent appearance, and is very mucf 
larger than is usually seen in the coun- 

There are two doors on the western 
side, and twenty-six windows. The 
steps aie eight in number, built of the 
same stone as the trimmings and case- 
ments of the doors. 'Jhe church La* 
been thoroughly renovated. There ar*i 
two isles aud four row^ of substantial 
pews and a beautiful chancel inclosed 
with semi-circle railing. During th- 
civil war the regiments stationed at 
Alexandria quartered ther pickets in 
this church, and the lVnn>yivrtnia and 
Iowa union .soldiers stabied their horses 
in it. The stone flagging of the isU 
were torn up and thrown out, the pul- 
pit and pews brokeu up, an(i the pieces 
sent as mementoes or relics to di(l*-rent 
states, to relatives and fri<;nd-. \ 
ington's pew mot the same treatment. 
The spot on which it stood, on tli^ 
north side, is pointed out to visitors. 
The roof of the church was pierc 
cd with bullets: all the iiiasterin2 
fell down; holes were chisel-'d out in 
the corners of the church, which Lad 
stone facing, to lind the money sup- 
posed to 1x3 in the corner-stone, and 
.some members of an Iowa regiment 
carved their ntmes in the west cornet 
on the stone facing near the door. 

Tile list of the names of the original 
vestrunen of Poliick c'lurcli was kind- 
ly furuished me by a Virginia gentle- 
man of Accotink, who is quite an 
anti'iuarian •.iml had copied ihem 
from the vestry book of 1772, which 
has been found during tlie last three 
months in tlio state of New York. 
where it had boon treasured ami hii 
away by a Virginia family. The lirst

kings'.s customs for the Potomac; 
Alexander H-^nderson, Martin Cobiirn. 
Col. Daniel McCarty, (xcn. Wm. Payne 
Thomas Wilber CulTer, and Mr. Klizer. 

Near the church is a small^grove. 
There are also many graves. I read the 
following inscription on a tombstone 
over a hundred years oM: 

"To the memory of Mrs. Susanna 
Mills, wife of John Mills (merchant), 
who de)):trted this life June 12, 177-t, 
aged .39 years.

of the difl'erent »cenos which had be«;i

Donald's Wife. 


J t 


•• — < f 

When Donald McKeon married his 
ward, Jessie Summer, many of his 
friends said he had made a mistake. 

She was a merry, laughing girl of 
£1 ^hteen, fresh from sehool, and he, 

* -r father's old friend, a quiet, self- 
contained man of thirty-five, and it can 
scarcely bo wonilered at that many 
wise heads were shaken over the ill- 
sortetl match. 

Jessie had always stood a little in 
awe of the ijuiet, stern man who had 
been a frequent visitor at her father's 
/^ inse during his life time. 

• But she was quite unprovided for, 
and Donald McKeon was wealthy; and 
when he asked her to be his wife in a 
matter-of-fact w;iy, very much as he 
might have askc«l iier to bo his house- 
keeper, it .seemed the easiest way lo 
solve the troublesome problem of her 
life; and, besides this, she knew her 
father to have Vteen under obligations 
to him, and more than suspected that 
the three years she had spent nt a 
fashionable school since her father's 
death had been at his expense. 

And so they were married, and he 
took her to his old home, tiiat his 
family lunl ownetl and occupied for 

It never occurred to iiim that it was 
a dreary sort of life for a girl like 
Jessie, alone in that gloomy old house 
all day, with only the servants and the 
ghosts of by-gone generations for com- 

And when she grew pale and listless, 
and lost her old elasticity of spirits, a 
fear that hail haunted him .«iince his 
wedding d.ny took possession of him 
and poisouetl lii.-> life— a fear that she 
had married him for home and posi- 
tion, and alrea Iv regretted ner choice. 

Gladly would he liave given her back 
her liberty had that been possibl'-. But 
being a sensative, undemonstrative 
man, he let her see nothing of this, out 
rather shrank from her because of the 
wrong he had done her, anil came and 
went and made no sign. 

And then people began to discover 
that Mrs. McKeon was a very ch.irm- 
ing woman, and her husband a wcnitliy 
and influential man, and invitations 
began to jwur in upon her. 

.\nd Jessie plunged into this new lite 
of fashionable dissipation with a zeal 
that was the natural reaction from the 
gloom and the loneliness of the past 

At first her husband accompanied her 
wherever she went, for ho had some- 
what old fashioned notions as to what 
was right and fitting for women to do. 

But it was a life ho utterly detested. 
It interfered with his bu^ine-s, and he 
looked below the surface and saw the 
hollow falshood it was. after all, and it 
grated on his fine ideas of truth and 

Perhaps he wjis somewhat dictatorial 
la his manner of telling licr this; jjcr- 
iiaps she imagined so. Hut when he 
urged the point, she rebelled against 

rhis assumption of authority. 
It was their first ipiarrtl and their 
last, but It was a very bitter one. 

She spoke cruel stinging words, that 
rankled :ind stung him the more that 
he had learned to love her so dearly, 
as only reserved, self-constrained men 
such as he can love, and then only 
when they hoard all the treasures of 
their n.aturft to lavish it in middle life 
/~i' on the woman who is their fate. 

After that he opposed her in nothing, 
bnt it W.19 as though a great wall of ice 
had risen between them. 

He devoted himself to business and 
she became the acknowledged leader of 
the most exclusive circle of tho cit\-. 

Stie was madly extravagant. She 
made the old house a marvel of rcsthetic 
beauty, and entertained like a princess. 

Mrs. McKeou's toilets, jewels and 
dinners became the mo<!el3 of her set. 

Men worshipped her beauty; but for 
all their fialteries she had the same 
bmile of cold contempt, and no man 
was bold enough to venture Ijeyond 
the most commonplace. 

And so the years passed, and each 
one drifted them further apart, until 
Ibej- scldom'met. e.vcept at their own 
grand entertainments. Each year she 
became more the slave of fashion, and 
he of his oftice. But through it all he 
loved her with an undying love, and 
his one thought was to gratify her 
every whim. 

And when the dark days came — 
when ships that were sent out freighted 
with costly wares went down, and 
were heard of no more— when 
hou.sos that seemed stable a.s granite 
failed, and h's wealth seemed melting 
away like a snowy wreath, his only 
thought was for her, and though each 
day his hair grew whiter and his form 
grew more stooped with bending over 
the long columns of figures in which 
the balance was always on the wrong 
side, he whispered, "For her sake," 
and strusglcd on and denied her noth- 

And even on the day when he 
eame home, knowing that all his ef- 
forts had availed him nothing, and that 
he was a poor man, his only thought 
was for her, that he would never more 
be able to give her the things she had 
bartered so much for. 

He went in the grand old library, 
that was almost the only room in the 
house which remained unchanged, and 
tried to collect hi.s 'thoughts. How 
could he tell her, was the question that 
reiterated itself through his brain, and 
for the first time in his life Donald 
McKeon was a coward. 

The thought came to him of how she 
who had charted at her bonds when 
they were gilded, would bear the closer 
relations that a straightened income 
would entail. 

And ho resolved that this at least he 
would spare her. After all his obliga- 
tions were met there would be some- 
thing left, not more than she had often 
lavished on one dinner, perhaps, but 
still enough to keep her from absolute 
want Jessie should have thi.s and he 
* ^ would go aw.iy and work for her and 
dream of her, but never again to trou- 
ble her with his presence. 

He sat down and wrote her a letter, 
telling her this simply, directly, and 
with the great love he bore her breath- 
ing through every word. 
- The servant told him she would not 
be in for some time, and he took the 
J|^ npte up to her room himself. 

It was a dainty place, bright as un- 
limited wealth and exqnisite taste 
conld make it. 

He left the note on her toilet table, 
lingering a moment to touch caressing- 
ly tha costly articles that were scat- 

tered about the room, all breathing of

When he returned to the parlor the 
early dusk was falling. A servant came 
brinjriuj' lijrlits, but he dismissed him 
Impatiently, and a few moments later 
heard the sound of wheels and the 
the sweet voice of his wife in the hall 
giving directions. 

At last the silence became unbear- 
able, and he seated himself at the 
piano. In his old batchelor d.ays mu- 
sic had been his passion, but in these 
U-iter years of feverish struggle he had 
found no time for it. But when his 
fiuger.s touched the keys all the dis- 
pair, thopaiu and longing in his heart 
found voice in the rich chords that 
filled the room.

burden was lifted. Music gave him 
the comfort .^ho ever gives to those 
who tiuely love her. It was no loiig- 
a wail of dispair, but a p:ean of thanks- 
giving for victory gained. 

So absorbed was ho that ho did not 
hear a soft footstep enter the room. 
A hand was laid on his shoulder, and a 
tremulous voice said: 

"Donald !" 

His hand came down with a sudden 
discord on the keys. It was the first 
time that Jessie had ever called him 
by that name. 

He turned and saw her standing there 
in her dressing-gown of soft cashmere. 
The firelight was sending long rays 
down the stately gloom of the Ibra- 
ry, and she looked very lieautiful 
ajrainst the rosy background. 

"You my letter, Jessie ?" 

"Yes; and I am sorry for your sake, 
Donald; you h.ave worked so hard for 
your wealth." 

•'Do not think of me, Jessie. It is not 
for m\ self I care. I am not afraid of 
l)overty. But, oh my child, if I could 
save you from its sting ! If it were at 
the sacrifice of my life, heaven is my 
witness I would not spare it." 

She came close to him, and laid her 
hands in his, 

"Donald, there is a better thing you 
can give me than wealth can buy. Give 
me back the love I so madly threw 
away. Let me work with and help 
you, and I will bless the day that made 
us poor!" 

"Jessie," he said, "are you sure of 
thjs? Do not try to deceive me. Do 
not say it if it is not true. I could go 
away now and learn to bear it, but to 
ojwn my heart to this new hope would 
kill me!" 

"Donald, do you think I am made of 
stone — that I could know all your 
kindness and patience all these years, 
and not lean to love you? Oh, so often 
I have longed to kneel at your feet .and 
ask your forgiveness, but I believed 
that I forfeited your deep love by 
my folly." 

"And you will not regret the loss of 
wealth and luxury?" he said incred u- 
ouslv. and can be happy with onlv my 

You forget that papa and I were 
poor before I married you, Donald, and 
I was happier then than I have ever 
been since I learned to hate the things 
that cost me so much, and to envy the 
poorest woman, happy in her husband's 

He turned the sweet tear-wet face to 
the firelight, and bcjit down and looked 
into her eyes. And then he took her 
in his arms. 

"My darling— oh, darling!" he said 

And deep in their h earts there was a 
gl.idness that all the treasures of the 
world could not buv. 

What Becomes of the Migrating 
The flight of storks has given trou- 
ble to the Germans and the Chinese, 
while the disappearance and reappear- 
ance of the swallows have caused un- 
told trouble everywhere. Learned 
bodies, like the French Academy and 
the Royal Society of London, have 
gravely as.serted that, in the Fall, 
swallows plunge into the mud of 
marshes and mill ponds, become torpid, 
and hibernate like frogs and snake.s. 
I have seen a list of nearly 200 articles, 
written all along from the middle of 
the seventh century down to 1877, for 
the purpose of proving or disproving 
the hibernation of swallows and other 
birds! And Dr. Cones says he can lay 
his hand upon papers of that period, 
which discuss the migartion of swal- 
lows to the moon, the falling of the 
little quadrupeds called lemmings in 
showers from the clouds, and the 
origin of brant geese from barnacles 
that grew on trees. Itdeed, not a 
year ago 1 was assured by a gentleman 
of more than average intelligence that 
this last is undoubtly the correct theory 
as ot the origin of the barnacle goose! 
And it was not a decade ago that I read 
in one of the leading newspapers of 
this State, an article of i\s curious a 
character. Its purpose was to explain 
the sudden appearance in Fall of the 
black snow-birds, and their as sudden 
disappearance in Spring, and the ex- 
planation given was that our common 
sparrows change color in Fall, becom- 
ing snow-birds, which they rema n uu- 
til Spriii;r, when they put on their other 
dress and become sparrows again! 
And I find that, among the common 
people of the country, there are many 
who have this belief. We have long 
known in a general w.ay that the birds 
go southward to Winter, and return to 
spend the Summer at the North. But 
just where in the South do they go? 
Why do they go there? By what route 
do they travel? At what rate of speed? 
Do they travel by night, or day, or 
both? What species migrate first, 
which last, and why? How are they 
guided in their course? What is the 
Winter as well as the Summer habit of 
each pari'cular species, when does it 
get thire, and when does it leave the 
one for the other? In what way and 
to wiiat extent are their movemouts de- 
pendent upon or influenced by vegeta- 
ble and meteorological phenomena. —

Curious Freaks of Nature. 

A few miles from Mackinaw, III., Is 
a curious piece of ground, nearly an 
acre in extent, which is so warm thai 
the snow melts as soon as it falls upon 
it, and though the surrounding country 
may be buried in deep drifts, this 
particular spot remains bare through- 
out the winter. The earth there is so 
dry that it is said to flash like pow- 
der when disturbed, and a i>eculiar 
gas issues from the ground, which has 
thus far shattered every vessel in which 
it is contineiL 

Mr. J. Ogden, of Jamestown. Dak., 
has a natural curiosity in the shape of 
a pig which came into tiie world 
less and hairless, but with a horn 
sticking out from the end of its neck 
like (he trunk of an infant rhinoceros. 
Its feet are like the hoofs of a horse, 
and there is a hump sticking out from 
its back, which is supposed to bo the 
missing head. The pig has one eye. 
It lived a week and was apparently 
hearty, but is now porserved in alcohol. 

A negro of the name of Wiley Smith, 
of Boker County, Ga., is said by the 
Savannah Xews to be a physical curi- 
osity. Ten years ago he was one of 
the blackest men to be found in the 
State, but to-day his skin is of a light 
gingerbread color. The change in 
him was first noticed in his finger-tips, 
whence it spread up his arms and then 
down his body. The backs of his 
hands are still quite black and dark 
spots still remain on his face and give 
it a strangely mottled appearance. 

A farmer named Orton, living near 
Byhalia, Miss., some time ago became 
the f.ither of a child which was natural- 
ly formed as far as the body and lowei 
limbs are concerned, but whose head 
resembles that of a rooster. On the 
top of the head, which is narrow and 
runs up into a peak, is a diminutive 
comb of a bright red color, and the 
nose looks like the boak of a game 
cock. The eyes are small and pro- 
tuberant, but the vision is clear and 
distinct. The child is not old enough 
to talk and his attempts to do so sounds 
exactly like a rooster's crow. Mr. and 
Mrs. Orton have several children who 
are physically perfect and are much 
distressed by the strange deformity of 
the child. 

A newspaper printed at Dolores, 
Argentine Republic, which is situated 
near the volcanic region, gives .an ac- 
count of a mysterious shower of stones 
which fell near that city a few weeks 
ago. The stones arc said to have fallen 
as thick as hail, and varied in size from 
a pebble to a very respectable boulder. 
Incalculable damage was done to the 
crops, tall trees were shivered to atoms, 
barns and outhouses were demolished 
and many domestic animals were kill- 
ed. In some localities the ground was 
covered with the bodies of wild geese 
and hawks, which appeared to hava, 
been killed during their flight in the 
air. Several persons were struck and 
badly injured while at work in the 
fields, and in the city itself, which 
missed the violence of the shower, one 
dwelling was wrecked. The stones ai'e 
said to have fallen continuously for 
more than a minute. 

Strange volcanic disturbances are 
said to have been frightening the peo- 
ple living along the Blood River, near 
New Concord, in Calloway County, Ky. 
The phenomena were first noticed 
about ten days ago, when all the wells 
suddenly ran dry, and at night there 
was a deep rumbling noise resembling 
the muttering of distant thunder, which 
seemed to come from tho earth. Oc- 
casionally there would be an explosion 
like the booming of a far-off gun, and 
recently a column of fire has been seen 
to shoot up at intervals during the 
night from Stonger's bluft', two miles 
from the town. Citizens who went out 
to investigate the disturbance say that 
the heat near the bluft so intense 
that they could not approach it. The 
scene of the phenomena is one of the 
wildest and most rugged parts of the 
State, and is remote from communica- 
tion by mail or telegraph. — New Vork 

French Industry and Economy. 

The French people seem to be as 
busy as bees in a hive. Industry — 
active, earnest and persistent — is the 
rule. A striking feature of this indus- 
try is found in the fact that persorfs of 
all ages and both sexes, gray-haired 
men and gray-haired women, wrinkled 
not only by age but by toil, are seen in 
Paris in larger proportion than else- 
where, all alike engaged in some indus- 
trial avocation. Woman in the humbler 
walks of life seems in France a more 
general helpmate than in the United 
States. Many French women are sur- 
prisingly halo and strong. In Paris, 
woman is everywhere a toiler, as much 
as a man. If a burden is to be borne, 
she is there to share the burden. If a 
hand c.irt is to be di'awu, she is har- 
nessed with a man, and supplies her 
full share of the strength to draw the 

This union of men and women in 
the struggle for honest livelihood has a 
moral as well as a material significance. 
It not only accounts for the fact that 
this people usually have cash on hand, 
but it is the cause of results still more 
important and precious, fo'r out of this 
mutuality and interdepmuh'nce in bear- 
ing the burdens of life spring honora- 
ble social and domestic relations. 
Even among the humblest and 
poorest classes in Paris the family is an 
institution of ideal sacredness. It 
may be true that th« French have no 
name for home, but it is not true that 
the real thing that constitutes home 
does not exist in France. A French 
home is a real home — a prized home. 
This union of eflbrt of which I have 
spoken telis of husband and wife, of 
parent and child, of love and affection. 
It tolls of the willing sacrifice of indi- 
vidual ease for the improvement of the 
cmiditioTis of existence for all. No peo- 
ple who thus love one another, and who 
thus labor together, can justly be re- 
garded as given over to destruction. 

But industry is not the only strong 
point in the lives of these Parisians. 
There is here a wholesome spirit of 
wise economy, from which we in Amer- 
ica m'ght well take a lesson. Nothing 
here that can be made valuable 
or useful to man is permitted to 
go to waste. There is economy 
in the use of time, space and every- 
thing else. Rags, bones, candle-ends, 
bits of meat, fragments of paper, are 
all saved and turned to account in one 
way or another. — Fred Douglass, in In- 
ter Ocean.

GrntirylnK Procreas Now Belnc Made 
by the Fair 8ez In the World of 

The pet theory indulged by so many 
of the lords of creation as to the in- 
feriority of the fiber of woman's brain 
seems to have been thoroughly ex- 
]>loded, says a writer in The Philadel- 
phia Record, by the way in which she 
mastered the abstruse arts and sciences 
when once she had the chance. When 
the history of the present century shall 
come to be written the advancement 
made by women as regards education, 
both social and professional, will bo 
one of the most conspicuous incidents 
recorded. This advancement is con- 
ceded as phenomenal, even by those 
who never doubted woman's mental 
capacity, and the inferior-brain-fiber 
fanatics are fairly put to rout They, 
however, find some small consolation 
in pertinaciously clinging to the state- 
ment that wo have no great female 
musicians, and that the women artists 
have in the past gained fame solely 
from their scarcity. They forget that 
even so late as fifty years ago the sys- 
tematic training of women in music 
and art was a thing almost unknown. 
It is true that women of even a remote 
day learned a little music as a polite 
accomplisement, but the thorough 
training tending to develope talent to 
the utmost was unheard of, while an 
art school for women did not exist, 
and the list of artists of that day re- 
presents merely isolated instances of 
such instruction. That anyone of them 
succeeded in winning a name is marvel- 
ous, considering the difficulties with 
which they were hedged about. 

But the time for a change had come, 
and about twenty-five years ago the 
Royal Academy of Arts, which had 
been established a hundred years or so 
for men, realized that the benefit of its 
system of instruction should extend to 
both se.xes. Female students were soon 
after admitted to its schools, with most 
satisfactory results. Gradually the 
movement gained ground, and at the 
present time a woman may pursue her 
art studies with almost as much free- 
dom as may her brother. This is as it 
should be. Women have an innate love 
for the beautiful, an eye for color, and 
a rare taste in decoration. Their dress 
and surroundings attest the fact It is, 
too, an open question wbether they are 
not gifted with as much imagination as 
the other sex, if not more, and this, 
coupled with native talent for color and 
an overflow of sentiment, points to 
their ultimate success in the world of 

Granted the ability to learn and the 
opportunity for learning, the battle is 
but just begun. The acquirement of 
all we know is mainly a matter of train- 
jug and instruction. The elementary 
knowledge is quite as important as the 
most abstruse principles of composi- 
tion and design, or of the effect of light 
and shade. And just here is where 
most women make their mistake. They 
go about their work in an amatuerish 
way and feverish haste to accomplish 
something that will show. Thorough- 
ness is lost sight of, and God-given 
talents are frittered away. They paint 
and etch and model and design, are 
fired with high enthusiasm, but fall 
short of greatness in a generality that 
almost make us doubt if the divine af- 
flatus has }'et been bestowed upon the 
last work of creation. And yet we have 
Rosa Bonheur and Harriet Hosmer 
and a few other representative women 
to attest to women's power to do what 
she will in art as in other things. But 
it is safe to say fEVit these women aim- 
ed at thoroughness in the start, and 
had determination enough to stick to 
their purpose. Without this will and 
spirit no great results can be attained 
in any aim of life. 
I do not wish to be understood as dep- 
recjitmo; the tendency of the tim^ to 
amalci?!' art. It ie a fascinating pursuit, 
and everyeno»f cultured mind or re- 
finement naturally desires some degree 
of acquaintance with that which tends 
to bring beauty and brightness into 
eveiyday life. And who shall say that 
in this line women are not rich con- 
tributors? They form the mass of 
workers in the art schools, and are 
bountiful in the work that adorn our 
homes and make life worth living. And 
it is they who" have nursed and kept 
Jilivo the splendid enthusiasm which 
finds expres^n in every form of de- 
corative work. Let them keep on in 
their good work (for it is good, no 
matter how lacking in the principles of 
art) and labor according to their light. 
They may not achieve fame, but they 
will give joy to the home circle, and 
refine and lift it up, which is a dear 
satisfaction to the heart that beats in 
the right place. But even to those 
home-workers the advice of thorough- 
ncss holds good. To keep resolutely 
to the study of the dry and rudimen- 
tary knowledge of anatomy, perspec- 
tive, and the principles of design is the 
sure way to make the most of limited 
opportunities. The habit of observa- 
tion is another great help, and calls for 
no special time or opportunity. The 
meanest object or the most common- 
place scene is rich with suggestions to 
the .seeking mind. 

Among the professional artists 
women may be said to be fairly should- 
er to shoulder with men during the Last 
two or three years. But it should be 
added that the men have not kept up 
to their usual standard. The ex- 
hibitions ore described as barren of re- 
markable works. The depression in 
trade may partly account for this, for 
artists in common with common people 
must eat and be clothed, and many men 
of note have latterly given much of 
their time to painting such things as 
they would disdain in more prosperous 
time.s. The actual outlay involved in 
the production of a large picture or a 
piece of sculpture is very serious, and 
unless there be a fair probability of sale 
for the work when finished there is 
a small encouragement for the ex- 
penditure of time and capital. Thus the 
financial depression tends to depress 
art. But it is not fair to suppose that 
women have done their best in the face 
of those discouragements. When the 
reaction shall set in we may look for 
better things at their hands. They are 
now fairly under way. The divine fire 
is kindled and will anon burst into a 
glorious blaze if women will but mingle 
something of reality with their ideality. 
And this I am sure they will do more 
and more as time goes on. The dawn 
of their progress in art is just break- 
ing. Thorough, honest, conscientioqs 
study will bring the perfect day. 


The Shat«In Soeletjr— Its Orcanlzatloo 
and Ita Work. 

There is a society the majority ol 
whose members never leave their own 
rooms. With over fifteen hundred 
members scattered over twenty states, 
its executive work is done by honorary 
members, and votes on imiwrtant 
questions are taken by postal card. 
The reason is expressed in the associa- 
tion's nanae— "The Shut-In Society." 

About ten years ago, after she had 
been an invalid for three years, Mrs. 
Nathaniel Conkling, of Convent, N. J., 
conceived the idea which led to the 
formation of this novel society. She 
had grown used to her sulfering, but 
felt alone among the members of ner 
family, who were all strong and well. 
She longed to have a companion with 
whom she could sympathize, whose 
weakness she might try to aid, and who 
would in turn render the same kind of- 
fices to her. Through a newspaper 
paragraph she learned of a young lady 
who was similarly situated. These 
wero written to, and so th^ idea spread 
until over fifteen hundred members are 
enrolled. For several years there was 
no organization or any thought of it, 
but ia 1882 the number corresponding 
had become so large that it was deem- 
ed expedient to infuse some degree of 
regularity in the administration of the 
society's afJ'airs, which had become an 
oppressive burden on Mrs. Helen M. 
Brown, the editor of Tlie Advocate and 
Ouardian, who had them in charge. 
Assistance was rendered her by Mrs. 
Kate Sumner Burr, of Walworth, N. 
Y., who started a paper, called The 
Shut-In Visitor, in January, 1883, and 
greatly aided in the management of the 
society. In December, 1884, it was final- 
ly decided to organize, and a meeti- 
ing was held in this city, which 
was attended mostly by honorary 
members. Mrs. Conkling was elected 
president. At this meeting it was de- 
cided to issue an official organ. The 
Shut-la Visitor now occupying that 
position. In Janury, 1885, a neat 
monthly journal, bearing the singularly 
appropriate name of The Open Win- 
dow, was issued. It contains letters 
from members, articles on matteis of 
interest to them and the announce- 
ment of the services of the weekly 
prayer-meeting, besides other matters. 

The prayer-meeting, if such a mis- 
nomer may be allowed, is without 
doubt unique. A thousand or so of 
people, each separated from the others, 
perhaps by scores of miles, at the same 
hour every Tuesday morning read the 
same chapters from the bible, make 
the same prayer, and learn the .same 
scripture lesson. This is the Tuesday 
morning programme of every "shut in" 
be he or she high or low. 

The name of the society was sug- 
gested by a line from the sixteenth 
verse of the seventh chapter of Genesis. 
"And the Lord shut him in," which 
Mrs. Conkting found one day while 
reading her bible, long before she 
thought of the society. Its mean- 
ing came lo her almost as a rev- 
elation, and she regarded herself 
thenceforth as one shut in by God. 

The object of the Shut-In society is 
to relieve the tedium of the sick-room 
by sending and receiving letters and 
other tokens of remembrance, the 
stimulation of faith, hope and cour- 
age, and the holding of concerted 
prayer at certain hours. 

It IS not a benifici.ary or benevolent 
organization, and has never been such. 
Its business is rath er with the spiritual 
and mental condition of its members 
than with temporal needs. — Neiv i'ork

Teaching a Poodle How To Read. 
Lecturing at Walsall the other day. 
Sir J. Lubbock, M. P. said: That the 
dog was a loyal, true, and nfl'ectionate 
friend must, he thought, bo gratefully 
admitted; but when they came to con- 
sider the physical nature of the ani- 
mals, the limit of their knowledge was 
soon reached. lie first began his ex- 
periments with a small terrier; but as 
these dogs were not accustomed to fetch 
and carry, and as fetching and carry- 
ing was part of the treatment, he found 
it better to find a dog that was accus- 
tomed to such work, and he selected a 
black poodle called "Van." First he 
took two pieces of cardboard, about ten 
inches by three inches, and bail printed 
on the one the word "food," leaving 
the other blank. The card beariu"' the 
word "iood" he placed over a saucer 
containing bread and milk, and put the 
blank card over an empty saucer. 
Van's attention was called to the sau- 
cers over and over again. In about ten 
days Van began to distinguish between 
the two cards. Then he put the two 
cards upon the floor, and sigu.aled Van 
to bring one of them, which he really 
did. When he brought the blank card 
he ^tho lecturer) threw it back with a 
gesture of impatience, but when he 
brought the one with the word upon it 
he was given some bread and milk, and 
in a few days ho distinguished between 
the two cards. Then he had some cards 
printed with the words "out," "tea," 
"tione," "w.ater," printed upon them — 
others having other words placed upon 
them, to which he did not attach any 
importance, merely putting them in 
that he might have a certain number. 
Soon Van distinguished lietwcen the 
white and the printed cards, but it took 
him a longtime to recognize the words 
"out,"' "bone," "tea," and so on, but 
at last, if asked if ho would go out he 
fished out the card with that word upon 
it from the lot placed higgledy-piggle- 
dy upon the floor, his behavior show- 
ing that in bringing it he really was 
making a request. This was only abe- 
gining, however; but it suggestive, 
and might be carried farther, although 
no doubt the limited senses of the dog 
constitutes a difficulty in the case. 
His wife had a beautiful collie, which 
was generally in the room when Van 
was Ijeing fed, and who was anxious to 
be fed in the same way; but it never oc- 
curred to the collie, although he saw 
the operation thousands of times, to 
pick a card and bring it that it might 
be fed in the same manner. Then pairs 
of cards differently colored were put be- 
fore the dog, and, one being picked 
out, an attempt was made to induce the 
dog to bring the corresponding one; 
but although two lessons per day were 
given for three months, the dog had 
no more idea what he should do at the 
end than he had at the begining.

A Famous Detective. 

Ja^ea Jackaon, the famous State 
detective, resides in Sing Sing, and is 
generally in attendance at the prison. 
His duties are to examine carefully 
the face of every convict as he enters, 
and to scrutinize every visitor in or- 
der to prevent any discharged convict 
Buemg his pals. Occasionally he has 
to make long journeys in pursuit of 
i-unaway prisoners or to identify crim- 
inals convicted in other States. He 
never makes a mistake; if once he looks 
a man in the eye he will know him un- 
der any disguise, as he tells his man 
by the look of his eyes. Once an es- 
caped convict had his nose pared 
down on third, but Jackson detected 
him at once, notwithstanding this re- 
markable change of feature. Sir. Jack- 
son is about 5 feet eight inches in 
height, about 35 year old, of a light 
and sinewy build, with black hair and 
piercing black eyes, and is altogether 
handsome. He knows about 10,000 
criniinals, and it is simply wonderful 
that he can distinguish the features of 
every one. On his long journeys he 
eats very moderately and always takes 
one Brandreth pill at night. When 
much fatigued by the jolting of the 
cars on his tiresome trips he uses two 
Allcock's Porous Plasters on the small 
of the back, which gives him renewed 
vigor and quickly relieve him ot all 
wearniess. These are the only two 
remedies he uses, and he attributes 
his vigor and remarkable health to 
Allcock's Porous Plasters and Brand- 
reth's Pills. Sing Sing, (N. Y.) Daily 

A Southern Justice. 

The Americas (Ga.) Recorder tells 
how justice was dispensed in the em- 
pire state of the South, on one occa

At a recent term of a justice's court 
a very important case was being tried. 
Eminent legal counsel had been em- 

f)loyed by both sides, the evidence 
lad all been submitted, the counsel 
for the complainant had finished his 
argument and the judge and those 
present were listening to the lawyer 
for the defense, who endeavored, of 
course, to put forth his side of the 
case in the best possible manner. All 
of a sudden the judge was seen to 
write something on a small slip of 

f)aper, which he then proceeded to 
old nicely, and depositing the same 
in a copy of the code in front of him, 
took his hat and remarking to the 
astonished gentlemen: "You can pro- 
ceed with your argument, Mr. , 

and when you have finished you will 
find my decision on that slip of paper," 
arose to leave. 

In vain were the remonstrances of 
the counsel. The judge would not be 
persuaded to remain, remarking to 
his astonished audience: 

"Don't you see that cloud over

November, 1880, Thomas Tormey, Scott 
Depot, Putnam Co., W. Va., wrote: "In

rubbings with it, got me out and cured me. 
No return." 

An Atistrain storm and an Australian

Before leaving for Atlanta, Chairman 
Cooley wrote the Sisters of St. Joseph, 
of St. Louis, refusing their request to au- 
thorize railroad companies to give them 
free transportation, as heretofore, and 
adding: The companies must determine 
for themselves what shall be their policy in 
the granting of favors to persons engaged 
in religious works. The statute allows the 
giving of reduced rates to ministers of re- 
ligion, nnil if thcj' are given en some gen-

legality could arise, and no railroad com-

therefore, the earliest Indications of inactivity of

writes a lady to her friend. "For a long

thoroughly miserable. I had terrible back-

I sent and got soma of the medicine after 
receiving your letter, and it has cured me.

"About the first of 8ept«ml>er, 1881, my 
wife was taken with uterine liemorrbage. 
The best styptics the physicians could pre- 
scrll>e did not check it and she got more 
and more enfeebled. She was trouljlc-l with 
ProlapHus V'teri, Leucorrhea, numbness of 
the limbs, sickness of tbeatotnach and !uim 
of appetite. I purchased a trial bottle of 
your Vegetable Compound. .She said she 
could dihcover a salutary effect from the 
first do9e. Now she is comparatively free 
from the Prolapsus, Hto-nach's sickness, 
d'c. The hemorrhage is very much hettsr 
and is less at the regular periods. Her ap- 
petite is restored, and her general health 
and strength arc much improved. We feel 
that we have been wonderfully Ijenefitted 
and our hearts are drawn out in gratitude 
for the same and in sympathy for other 
flufferers, for whose sakes we allow our 
names to be used.''

The court ot claims has rendered a do 
cision in the suit of the State of Louis- 
iana against the United States to recover 
170,000 swamp land indemnity and 5 
per cent funds which had been offset 
Against A like amount due the government 
on tho direct tax levied 111 18CI. Tho 
court held that the tax was not a debt of 
tho state, but of th6 land owners against 
whom it was assessed, and c<msoquently 
could not bo set off. This decision may be 
attended by very important couseiiuencos. 
Tho case will take a good many thousand 
dollars out ot the treasury, and may 
possibly lead to a refunding of the direct 
taxes to tho Southern states, which, by 
stress of arms, wore compelled to pay that 
impost during tho war, and which were tho 
only members of the rebelious sisterhood 
who did pay that. Similar suits are pend- 
ing in Alabama and Mississippi.

A Washington correspondent says: 
''There is a suspicious air about the White 
House lately, which some people maintain 
grows out of the fact that Mrs. Qeveland 
is not much given to social matters just 
now. She seems rather to avoid publicity, 
and to seek tho seclusion of her country 
home. Tho president, however, is even 
better natured than ever. He wears a per- 
petual smile orchis face, and occasionally 
whi-ttles softly to himself as he looks out 
over the broad Potomac and thinks of Mrs. 
Cleveland at Oak View, the certainty of his 
renomination and other pleasing topics. 
The democratic politicians and the olcl 
women are certain that 1«87 will be the 
proudest year of Grover Cleveland's life.''

Gen. SlKU'idan, and denounces him for "the 
wild, wanton waste and desolation which 
his barbarous torch npread through tho 
valley" duriiii; the war. Alter reading Kos-

Re>sser has not forgtitten tho whaling I 
gave him in the valley, and I am not siir- 
iirisrd that he loses tejuper when liu recalls 
it. Yes, sir, when I was moving down the 
valley I had an iuqiortaiit object in vinW 
und iliil not care to he annoyed. Rosser 
was sent after me with a l>i'i.;ailn, but I did 
not loiisiderit worth while to give him 
niuchalloiitiou. (ieu. TorbefB divi.iion of 
cavalry foriiied tlio rear of my column, 
and 1 was confident ho could take 
care of Rosser. Occasionally Ros- 
ser would come iicrosa small dotach- 
iiients ot our troops and would swoop 
down upon thorn Finally it was reported 
to mo that I'o.sser had captured my pack 
train, and ths made me mail. Having the 
entire army right on tlioroad, I galloped to 
the rear to find Torbet, dolermined to set- 
tle Rosser. I found the train had 
not been rniitured, although it had en- 
countered Rossir and was coming in con- 
slderahly scattered and broken up. I 
could not find Torbet and thid added to 
my rage. When I found him he was (juiet- 
ly enjoyliighimselfatafarmhouse. I called 
hini out and iiilornieil him 1 wanted Ros- 
ser cleaned out, and that if ho could not 
do this I would take his division and do 
it myself. I concluded I would remain and 
see the work performed, and so informed 
Torbet. Tho following morning, early, 
Torbet went after Rosser, whose brigade 
Was struck with an impetuosity that 
caused t hum to scatter. Wo stripped the 
enemy of everything he had captured -all 
his guns, cKctpt one which siil>se<|ueiitly fell 
into our hands, and nil his baggage, includ- 
ing Rosser's personal etiei^ts. It was a 
regular frolic tor our lioys. Custer got 
Roster's uniform, and occasionlly wore it 
for the amusement of his command. Tor- 
bet pursued Rosser to New Market, a dis- 
tance of about, twenty-live miles. lie did 
Hot trouble me further. This Incident was 
doubly humiliatiiig to Rosser because he 
fvas hailed as tho '.Savior of the valley.' 
His men wore small laurel twigs in their hats 
as an indicatiou of their purpose to clean us 
out. Sometimeafterthis, whenRosseragain 
appeared in that vicinity. I understand 
the people advised him to substitute 
pumpkin vines for laurel, that plant being 
well known for running qualities. For 
those reasons I suppose Gen. Rosser con- 
tinues to feel unkind toward me. He says 
that I have not atoned for my acts during 
the war. That is true. It never occurred 
to me that I was called upon to do so. I 
want to add iu this connection that I do 
not propose to make a trip to the Shen- 
andoah valley the coming summorand had 
not thought of so doing. I visited the valley 
last summer in company with Senator Cam- 
eron of Pennsylvania and was hospitably 
received by the people, none of whom ex- 
hibited any of the bitterness of feeling 
that is expressed in Gen. Rosser 's letter. I 
understand Rosser ia now living in tho 
valley, and as ho intends to become a can- 
didate for congress, liis letter was doubt- 
less written for effect upon bis coming po- 
litical campaign. 

Knormouii Increase of Wexteru Trnde. 

Tho weekly trade review by R. G. Dun' & 
Co., of New York says: The feature of bus- 
iness reports is tho enormous i:icrease re- 
ported at many Western points. In that 
section the interstate act, though checking 
trade nt some important points, seems to 
have produced a feeling of extraordinary 
confidence in a much larger number ot 
towns. (Jther causes, particularly the 
8i>eoulation in real estate and the ac- 
tivity in building, contribute t" ■ swell the 
transactions surprisingly. At Cincin- 
nati cleuriugs show un increase ot '32 per 
cent over Inst year, nt St, Louis 10 percent 
and at Chicago li, while St, Paul and Sua 
Francisco report Kulns ut d3 per ueiil, 
Memphis, St. Joseph, Puorla, oxceeding 'lO 
per cent, Indianapolis Riicl Denver nearly 
80 per cent, Omaha 102 per cent and 
Wichita, Kan., 110 per cent. Apart from 
land trading and new building, other busi- 
ness has been remarkably active through- 
out that region. St. Paul n<)tes a 
largo output of flour, Cincinnati 
ancl Milwaukee a distinct inqirove- 
ment in trade and collections, and tlio sup- 
ply of money seems everywhere ample. 
Eastern cities do not find a corresponding 
improvement in trade. Large amounts of 
capital are going to tho West on mortgage 
loans. Railroad earnings eivo proof that 
while traflic is large tho increase falls far 
! short ol reported grains in the volume of 
' business in tho West. Reports of railroads 
for Ajiril show an average increase of 17 
per cent in gross earnings over lust year. 
Already 070 miles of railroad have been 
completed against 052 to dato last year, 
and new contracts nre offered in great 
variety and Iur::e amounts, but the uncer- 
tain prospects as to rates and tho decis- 
ions of the iiiterstato commission affects 
investniants in stocks, though prices have 
improved a little. The enormou.s supply 
of money goes far to explain thesituation. 
Not only has the treasury added about

the abundunne and cheapness of money in 
London are clearly felt here. 

Decision of lows Railroad CommUslonrr*, 

The Iowa railroad commissioners, in the 
case of the complaint of Gov. Larrabea 
against the (hicago, Burlington A- (^uiiicy 
sallroad, gave their decision. They say: 
The complaint makes it their duty to de- 
termine whether or not tho railroad com- 
pany had charged an unreasonable rate. 
Tlie government had arraigned and 
put them on trial before tho bar of public 
opinion for the manner in which 
they hud performed their duties, and had 
given them notice that unless they redoem- 
ed themselves the commission would have 
to go. Lengthy quotations are made from 
the governi>r's criticisms of prior action of 
the board and for their alleged ne>;lect of 
duty. They say that in February last they 
held in this same case that tho shipment of 
coal from Cleveland on the "(J " routo 
from Glen wood, 130 miles, and to 
Council bluffs, iri7 miles, were un- 
der like conditions and circumstances ex- 
cept distance; that $1.80 per ton for the 
shorter distance against $1.25 for the 
i longer distance was excessive and unjust 
discrimination and they reconimended a 
revision of the tariff rates to conform to 
the provisions of the interstate law. The 
roaa advanced its Council Bluff rate to 
$1.00. A rehearing was had, and tho 
commission, after reviewing the arguments 
and a careful study of rh.te8 on coal 
roads, find a general concession is 
made at competing points. From 
all sources of inlormalion possible they de- 
cide that for class "A " roads, a proper 
terminal charge is 30 cents a ton. An ad- 
ditional reosimable rate up to 100 miles 
distance shoiiUI be mills per ton per mile; 
to 200 miles, 7 mills; to ;J00 miles, G mills; 
to 400 miles. 5 mills, to 500 miles, 4 mills 
per ton. The reasonable rate on coal 
from Cleveland to Glenwood would bo 

The decision of tho commission is unan- 
imous. This is tho first decision on "long

Alexander nitrhell'ii health. 

Milwaukee Sentinel: Unless John !>. 
Mitchell, John Johnston or David Fergu- 
son choose to tell, no one will over know 
what amount of wealth Alexander Mitchell 
bad ainaBse<l. The late banker took good 
care of that. In tho first place be made 
his widow nnd sou sole ex- 
ecutors aud stipulated that they 
nee<l furnish no bond (the amount 
of the bond in such case is supposed to 
represent twice the value of the estate.) 
No inventory will he tiled, as is usual, be- 
cause the executors have deci<le<l to file a 
bond sullicient to cover the indebtedness, 
and Mr. Mitchell's will, after making a num- 
ber of minor bequests, loaves all the rest 
of the property to his son, without specify- 
ing what that rest of his proi>erty con- 
sists of. 

The Mitchell estate is not the only large 
one concerning whose value the public is 
in entire ignorance. The large Nunnemach- 
er estate never got into the probate oflice 
at nil. .Mr. Niinnemacher simply loft a 
private letter to one of his sons directing 
what disposition he wanted made of hij 
property. The I'ereles estate was also 
left under conditions which made it impos- 
sible to any one outside of the heirs to 
learn its value. 

One of Beecher'f old Letters. 

Galesburg (III.) Special: The following

Very turly vours, 


natural Kelerllon. 

(irant Allen, in tho Fortiiighl ly Review, 
has given an interesting arllcle on l,ove. 
He floes not seem to a^oe with Sir Goorgo 
Cain|iliell who would have husbands and 
wives selected for euch other on scientific 
principles. He thinks that the voice ot 
nature is far better tliaii the dictum of the 
Lord ChaiKi-llor or the Royal Society; 
that it is not foolish fancies of youth that 
will have to be got rid of, but the tool- 
isli, wicked and mischievous iu- 
tcrferonco of parents or outsiders. 
This is ipiite in the vein of an address by 
Dr. Foote, Jr., at Metropolitan Hall, on 
the occasion «il tho first meeting of tho 
Auxiliary Hereditary Association in this 
city some years ago. If there is to be in- 
terterenco it ought to bo wholly on scien- 
tific grounds, and scientific interference 
might many times offset to advantage tho 
meddlesomeness of parents and friends. 
The best way would bo to have young 
people well instructed in the laws of tem- 
peramental adaptation and in everything 
appertaining to Heredity, aud then leave 
them to their own fancies.—From Foo|^'s 
Health Monthly. 

The Kallroail fomnilHslonerH and the Manitoba 

The Minnesota railroad commissioners 
have addressed a letter to General Mana- 
ger Manvel, of the St. Paul, Minneapolis & 
Manitoba railway company, concerning 
the recent accide'it at St. Anthony I'ark. 
The letter is as follows: 

The attention of the commissionis called 
to the report of a sad accident said to hav* 
occurred on the line of your road at St. x\n- 
thouy i'ark, whereby Clara Lindmeyer lost 
her life. Wo arc informed in this connec- 
tion that there are several trains run 
on that line which do not stop at that sta- 
tion, but they are run past it at almost, if 
not (juite, the usual rate of speed which, if 
true, seems to tho commission to border 
onr ecklessness of human life. We should 
like to hear from you as to tho exact cir- 
cumstances attending the accident— which 
of course, you have, or will at once ascer- 
tain with care and certainty, though the 
coroner of the county has decided that no 
inquiry on his part is called for— as well as 
what precautionary measures, if any, your 
company may have in contemplation to 
prevent the occurence of similar accidents 
in'the future. 

Snlelde of Rev. Charles Ward. 

A dispatch from New York of May 4, says: 
Rev Charles Ward , formerly rector of St. 
Paul's Episcopal church at Englewood, N. 
J., who shot himself aud wife and tried to 
kill his liltlo daughter last February, was 
found dead in his room at the home of Judge 
Drew, Rockland Lake. Judge Drew is the 
rector's counsel in the criminal prosecu- 
tion brought against him, and also in 
the case of tlie suit of his wife for 
a bill as separation. ' About three 
weeks ago the judge had his client taken to 
his home, so as to be with him when ho 
jirepared his answer to the charges. Hie 
dead bod.y was found this afternoon, and 
in the room was an empty bottle which 
had formerly contained a mixture of hy- 
drado of chloral. The buJy was discovered 
by Dr. Wat.son of Washington, D. C, a 
guest of Judge Drew. A note was found in 
Mr. Ward's handwriting addressed to Mr. 
Watson, saying that the chloral prescribed 
was not strong enough, and that he had 
been obliged to take it all together. Dr. 
Ward was a long time rector of the Epis- 
copal Church at Winona, Minnesota.

Mr. Bushnell is deeply Interested in build-

anxious to assist in every reasonable way 
in securing such an exhibit and in drawing 
attention to our state and the Northwest 
ns a rtyion where good machinery is not 
only used and needed, but where it is also 
made in great perfection. It is appropri- 
atethat thomanufacturingand commercial 
interests of our state should be us well rep- 
resented at the state fair as are tho fiirm- 
lug and stock-raising interests.

the strict rules which have hitherto been

qu.rriandher ministers; but afte;- 
wards lie was always expected at the 
council tables. fSut their happiest 
titnei were when they were jilaying to- 
gether—both were accom|)lished niii-

for him-elf two rules, in order to si- 
lence scandal, which had been so rife 
uurl.r laevious reigns, and to 
obviate jt; on the part of his 
wife— he would pay no visits and would 
go nowhere unattended by an eijiierry. 
This was his rule through life, and it 
arct>mpli.shed his object. No breath 
of scandal ever tarnished his reputa-

Tiio new ipieen was a riildlo to every

iiid \ ictoria had danced with many 
4etitl..Miien, but no one— not even Mie 
iu.hess of Northumberland, her . .- ::overness— could .say that they 
knew her disposition. It was tak 
for granted that she was liirht 
Involous. The duke of Welli 
lelt sure that the torics would not .'ct 
on with her; "for" said he, "Peul has 
no luanners, and I h;ive no sm.ill 
Jalk." h i.s ipiito hkelv that the 
fnvoliiy which exasperate.l peoi.le in 
Lold Melbourne was to .some ixtent 
assumed, bicuse he thought it woul.l 
pUase the young queen. It seems, 
howev. r, that this conception of her 
chanicter was f.-vlse. She was at 1 S 
very nearly as serious, as self posse3.s 
e.l and as resolute as she is now -it 

She was a born politician. iMuiii" 
her long .seclusion siie had read c.ire^ 

Uilly, and win n she a.scend.'d the throne 
sho was a whig. She had no tolera- 
tion for the tories. She couM not 
bear thorn. She lluna herself into 
Lor.l .Melbourne's arms and let him 
run thegoverninent to please himself. 
Presently ho ceased to comman.l a 
majority in parliament, and had to 
resign m favor of SirKobert Peel. The 
latter insisted on siirroundiir.,' the 
queen with la.iies of tory families. 
V Ictoria refused to change her altend- 
ant.s. and under the circumstances 
Sir Uobert refused to lake oUice The 
girl of nmeteen ha 1 not learned the 
necessity ot subordinating her feelin.'s 
tothedutiesof the station she occu- 
picvl. Lord Melbourne resumed the 
post of prime minister. 

It hits been said that the .Inchess of 
Sjixe-Coburg :ind th.' kiti.: of the Bel- 
.ns had predestined Prince Albert 
r fhe queen. A year before the 
u— iMi. when they were both 
-.v. nteeii. the young couj)le met tor 
the iirsttime, and. havinu many t:isus 
in /^mmon, iiked each otlier. Subse- 
quent meetings confirmed the mutual 
rtkiard. After Vict ,ria became .pieen. 
Albert came U. En-laud. The old 
king of the Bel_i;ins had sounded her 
and found her willing; he had comnui- 
cate.l his di.scovery to Alliert, who 
as ardent. But the young lady w;is 
clear-headetl and practical. "We are 
both Ui/A^ount: to think of marrying," 
she w7V)i,\^ '-.VUiert is imj)tartectly ac- 
quainted with English, and is only 
just out of college. "Lee us wait three 
or four years." And meanwhile she 
declined to correspond with him. Al- 
bert was as calculating as she. "If," 

Iwenty years ago the queen pub- 
lishe.l a volume containing her diary 
during her journey to Scotland, and 
hfteen years later this was followed 
by a second volume on the same sub- 
ject, coming down to 1S.S2. The 
boidcs are interesting because they 
constiliite .1 forty years' diary written 
hy a queen regnant. The thouL-hts 
are trivial, the observations trite, the 
style unciilture.l; they reflect the 
mind of a commonplace, honest, kiml- 
ly woman, who might have been as 
much at home as the wife of a retail 
gr.ieer as the (pieen of England and of India. Thus siie tells us: 
"I ate some oatmeal porridge for

Hcrr, the Aiinrcliist. 

Most, the Anarchist, was released 
from prison in New York recently and 
had a rousing reception from his 
friends, and made a siieeoh. Tlieso 
are some of his sayings: 

On the jury that convicted him— 
Twelve arrogant so calletl "business 
men" and "gentlemen." 

On his prison— They put me into a 
suit which would have been very ap- 
propriate for a scarecrow, shaved mo 
once a week for six months with a 
blunt razor, gave me work in a 
smithy, and thrust me into a dark 
cavern seven feet long and three feet 
wide. There I was treat e 1 like a 
beast not a man. I was fed with jiig's 
swill in a kind of monkey case, where 
abcuit SO prisoners were" i)acked, like 
sardines in a box. 

Here, together withaherd of thieves, 
I was driven to work, to feed, to the 
wash place, *c., under t ho constant 
brutal hallooing and commanding of 
the keepers, who, in most, ex- 
liibit the education and manners of 
cowboys. To make it short I never 
witnessed, let .alone experienced, a 
siinilar brutality to that ruling in 
this institution in any other prison. 
In this country such treatment seems 
to be considered just and fair, at least 
the numerous idlers that visited the 
prison day after day and who .special- 
ly Snuffed around me enjoyed it great- 
ly. They wanted to crush me, but 
only increased a hundred fold my 
hatred and contempt for a society 
that has no other argument than the 
prison to refute ideas. I remain as I 
was before a Socialist, Communist, 
Atheist, and Anarchist, and will again 
dehantly uhlold tht banner of social 
revolution. I am ready, if it must be, 
to die for it. 

On me and Marat— I say here in the 
presence of the authorities, or their 
hirelings, a year ago they put me in 
ison, but they can't do it now.

Frederick Smith, who lived in Ran- 
dolph county, N. C, during the War 
01 the Revolution, had a difficult part 
(o play. Ho was indifferent to the 
king's claims, and ho cared little for 
the cause of the colonics. If people 
wi.shcd to t)o patriots and fight the 
Britiiih trooiis. Smith was willing, 
provided ho was not disturbed in Ids 
log-cabin, which was Idled with "olive 
lilants" in the form of little Smiths. 

Smith, being a quiet man, with lit- 
tle shrewdness, and no convictions, 
was willing to side with those in whose 
c(Miipany ho found himself, whether 
Whig or Tory. But his plastic nature 
was the occasion ofseveraldiflicultiefl, 
Mnall parties of Whigs would assume 
the costume or badges of Tories, and 
go about the country, picking up 
reticent blends of King (Jeorge. One 
day a party of Whigs, disguised as 
Tories, came upon Smith. Not know- 
ing him, they asked him the usual 
•luestion, "Whom are you for?" 
^ Smith answered, "I am for the king, 
ttod bless him!" 

"Are you?" replied the leader; 
"then we'll hang you!" and in a min- 
ute or two Smith was dangling from 
the limb of a tree. 

As they did not desire to push mat- 
ters too far, they soon cut him down 
and let him go, with the warning to 
changes his politics. Not long after a 
pary of Torics. disiiuised as Whics, 
ranging in the neighborhood, asked 
him again, "Whom arc you for?"

so;" "AlbiTt observeil that it was al- 
ways saul that parents live 1 their 
lufs oyer again in their children, 
whiih is a very pleasant feeling;," 
with liiindrijils of equally strikni" 
ami i)iofoiin(l remarks. Still it is 
pUa.sant to read a queen'.s remark 
that 'diirins the voyaye I wa.s always

pruices.s of <ierniany) her lcs>io.— " 
and "i alway., ny, when pos.sihli;, to 
lifnr thti ihildien s.iy their pravcr.s my- 
self.'' On the occ.u-<ionofthe death of 
the duke of Wellington the queen rises 
al.ove her usual level in a few noble 
sentences e.vpressing her loss. And 
theact;ount of the betrothal of tho 
I' Victoria is .so neat that we 
V'",".' '1"«^^« i^- "I'rince Frederick 
U illiHiii of Pru.-jsia had already spo- 
ken to us of his wishes with regard to 
w\\- dear Victoria, but we were uncer- 
tain, on account of hercxtremeyouth, 
whether ho should speak to her him- 
selt, orwait till he came back airain 
However, we>lt it better he should do 
.^o; and during our ride this afternoon, 
he picked a piece of white heather— 
theembleni ofuoodluck- whiih he-mvo 
toher.and thi.s enabled him to vvake 
an allusion to his hojies and wi.shes 
as they rode down the i;leii, which led 
to the happy conclusion." There isn't 
niueh diir.-tence, when it conies to 
wooin- between primes and cobblers. 
Ihe diary, read in connection with 
nlher publications by thequeeu.shows 
i!o two sides of her character. One i^ 
the yood, kindly woman goinu around 
with (lannel petticoats for old women, 
and pas,sioiiately ikvoted to her chil- 
dren; the other is the monarch, keenly 
attentive to public business. She is 
interest in<i in both points of view. 
J^erhaps the most pathetic jias.-^a'.'cs 
ol the diary are tiiose in which slie de- 
.•=cribes tho receipt of the news of tho 
death of the prince imperial. Whether 
or no he was to Princess 
Jjeatnce, there can be no doubt that 
the .pioen and her daui^hter were very 
ff)nd of him. The news could not have 
shocked Ihem more had it been the 
thath of one of thnii- own family. It 
reached tho .pieen on the eve of the 
anniversjiry of her accession, but, as 
.^he says, she liar] no heart for celebra- 
tions. All jtala was i)Osti>oiieil. An- 
other plea.'iant j.icture is thereceipt of 
the news of the battle of Tel el- 
i^ebir. The .|ueen, Beatrice and 
I-ouise, wife of the duke of 
ConnauLjht, were staying at nalmoral 
when W olseley's telegram aunoniuin;,' 
the victory reached her niaiesty. Ife 
took care to mention thatthu duke 
of ronnaught had distinmiished him- 
.self, an.I was safe. Straight, these 
two women, his mother and his wife, 
tell upon each other's necks and wejit 
ill concert, as woni(>n will do on re- 
-eiiit of irood or bad news, cither. A 
lew ilays afterward the mails came, 
ami Loiii.-;a had a \o\v^ letter from the 
duke. The uuetn went to her 
an.I -'dear Louisehcn read me

A Good School. 

One of the most interesting schools 
in the city of New York is connected 
with and supported by the firm of 
Hoe it Company, manufacturers of 
saws and printing presses. Tho firm 
employs about a thousand men, and 
usually has in its shops two hundred 
and fifty boys learning their trade. To 
construct the immense and rapid 
printing press now r-c.i .-.-.i.ii.e.^ tho 
".. .^t accurate and skillful machinists, 
and tho Hoe brothers perceived that 
boys at present have not a fair chance 
to acquire accur.icy ami skill. 

Accordingly, some time ago, tlu-y 
founded their school, in which their 
ajiprentices receive, live evenings in 
each week, nine months in the year, 
the best instruction in the principles 
of their trade. 

Two skillful draui^htsmen give in- 
struction in machine drawing. Other 
teachers carry the boys forward in 
arithmetic, algebra and peom.'try. 
Ihe principles of mechanics are thor- 
oughly taught, as well as illustrated 
ay apparatus. Occasionally a short 
lecture H given on the rights and du- 
ties of a citizen, or on some inttrest- 
ing point of history or geognqihy. 

At si.\ o'clock in the evening, when 
the day's work is over, the boys find 
ready for them near the school rooms 
a lunch, which is furnished free by the 
hrm to save the boys from of 
time in goinir home. Kt lialf past si.x 
the session begins, and lasts an hour 
and a half and the pupils have still .1 
i;ood part of the evening at their dis- 

The school is equally beneficial to 
the apprentices and to the enlightened 
men who employ them. The boys uet 
knowledge of geometry and mechanit s; 
the lirm gets knowledge of the boys. 
\\ heri an apprentice shows superior 
intelligence , manual dexterity,or bu.s- 
iness aptitude, the lirm knows it, and 
in due time he is placed where ho will 
do most good to himself and to them. 

"What wa.s the old 
now the Thalia." 

The doctor smiled and then 

".Many's tho night I've excused 
my.self from prayer- meet inn when a 
boy, and with a quarter dollar pone 
ilown to the old Bowery to see stage 
life from the pit with newsboys and 
bootblacks. I used to pay a shilling 
out of the (luarter for the jirivilegts of 
the pit, and the rest of the money 
would buy a halfdozen pigs' feet— pigs' 
hockies we called them." 

His friend seemed interested, and 
the doctor continued the reminiscence 
with the gusto of a Lid. 

"^''ttiiig with the lads in tho pit in 
thosedays.eatingpigs' feet ami ab.sorb- 
ing gory villainy from the stace! And 
the 'thrasher,' too— tho bii: fellow with 
a c.ano who waded through us al out 
so otten, and thumped our skins and 
he/uls on tho general jirincipla of pre- 
vent mg noise, no matter how quiet we 
might bt! at the time. There used to 
bo a bail, bad man who .'icted on the 
stage there— the fellow with red boots. 
Velvet breeches, plaid vest, vtivet coat 
juid wi.-ked knife and hat. He was a 
hero. Ho was the greatest man in the 
world to us boy.s, and when he'd 
come on with his wild eyes glaring 
wickedly we boys would cling to 
the pig.9' feet with out 

teeth for a minute while 
we slapped our hands to blisters and 
shouted the best wo could. Glorious 
days those! There was justenouehfltv 
vor of the forbidden to make jii^'e 
hockies the sweetest truit, only I nev- 
er could stay to see it out. and that bitterness most bitter. I had to 
L'et out so as to make my fun and the 
end of tho prayer-mooting tally as to 
time; so I always lost the last act 
and had to get my chum to tell it to 
me. To be an actor in the old Bow- 
eiy Theater, to me then, seemed the 
highest a Ml bit ion a man could achieve." 
The doctor smiled again over his recol- 
lections and then added with serious-

is well known to all in this community, I 
was for years a great sufferer from infiam- 
luatory Rheumatkrm, at timeji Ijeing con- 
fined to my house fof several weeks, and 
totally incajiable of helping myself. 

I have received the attendance of several 
of our hest physicians and" have tried 
eyerytj^^g In the shape of rheumatic medi 
cine that was recommended, or that I 
could hear of, but without benefit. 

It was during one of these attacks that 
I was induced to try Dr. Pauuke'h Rheu- 
M.i7it KE.MEDV, and before I had finished 
the second bottle I was so much improved, 
that 1 felt no pain whatever. I continued 
its use, and now i «ira as well as ever. 

I take great pleasufe rn recommending it 
to all rheumatic sufferers, am I believe it to 
be the very best article of thtfj^ind iu this,

The Dcray of Iron. 

Boston .loiirnai. 

Mr. David Stilet? of Middleton, who 
lias been a worker in iron 
with his own hands lor more fifty 
years, has written an interesting; let- 
ter to the Salem Gazette, in which he 
shows by observation that iron roti» 
from age. He says that thecontinual 
].ar has the effect to weaken thetensik- 
strength of iron, which statement he 
illustrates bv saying that the step oi 
a carriage when new niav bebcnt b;i:k 
and forth without breaking, but after 
a few years' service it will break, no 
matter how well preserved. The same 
loss of tensile M rength is noted in car- 
nage springs. 'J'lie poorest may be 
safely warranted lor a year, but even 
after that short time ihey liegin to 
break, and those of the best (piality 
will break after years of constant and 
trying service. The writer has found 
that old irowliars, made of the best 
.Swedish iron .md used by the early 
settlers of New En-lan.I, have liecome 
so rotten that th.>y coiiM not bo weld- 
ed when broken and had an ofl'-nsiv. 
smell when the wel.tinL' lient was ;ip 
phed. Formerly all iron was wrought 
by the trip hammer, which scattered 
all the brittle and worthless material,

t.ain as much catliurlic po»ver as any of the 
old-fashioned largo i.illa without tlio hitter's 
violent, drastic effects. The i.ellets..norate

Mr. Editor.— Our Village Fath- 
ers deserve the thanks of all onr 
people for having the trees in our 
public park trimmed up, and also 
cleaning the park grounds up in 
good shape. 

Now let a move be made to have 
a new fence built, it needs it badly 
it the council will appropriate one 
half of the cost, the remainder can 
be easily raised by private subscrip- 
tion. It would make a great difF- 
erance in tlie appgarance of the 
oroperty, and we should all feel 
proud of it.

the nature of a general proposition, and 
was not intended as a direct offer.

about him. From another nnd trust- 
worthy source, however, I learn that the

but alarminu. My informant went so htr

A late mafiaane puts in a piea for 
the nse of both hands. The left arm 
and hand are endowed with inst as 
many bones and muscles and arteries 
as tho right, all tiheelenMnts of 8tr«l|tth 
and usefulness being shared eqaally 
at the start. In the left member, how- 
ever, these componenta have often be- 
come 8hrunk«n, UinHb almost palsied, 
by the sniibhing and misuse which they 
have received. This defect, in extreme 
cases, amonnts to lopsided ness so 
painfully apparent as to baffle con- 
cealn^ent even by skillful padding. 
Man has, then, by carelessness, indif- 
ference, or ignorance, reached a state 
of deformity which he will not brook in 
domestic animals. There are enough 
instances of men and women overcom< 
ing the awkwardness and weakness of 
their left arms and hands to encour- 
age a more universal attempt in this 
direction. When the reform of even- 
handedne.'^s is once determined upon, 
the ways and means for its accom- 
plishment will doubtless readily pre- 
sent themselves.

foes upon the battle Held, and while the 
Union genernl and the people's president 
awaited burial, the common grief of tho 
mngnnnimo'js survivors nnd mourning cit-

tion to erect this tribute to American 
grentness, and thus to-day in its 
symmetrv and lienuty it presents a sign ol 
animosities forgot ten, nn emblem of a broth-

which challenge admiration in American

battle, fame and distinction in our l.alls 
of legislation and tin* highest honor nnd 
dignity in the chief m.igistrney of tho na-

and the thoughtful citizcp, who viowa its

call the traitedy of a death which 
brought gri ;f nnd mourning to every house-

zenship stands aghast and affriilited that 
murder nnd nssassiimtion should lurkin tho

the head ol their goverament, a fearless 
search and the discovery ot the origin and

was Mr.s.Dunning's pride, and a marvel 
of eonvenien*'*', bv the bv, they all sat 
uown on « long wootlen bench that was 
under r^reat overhang ng lilac bu.shes, 
jnsi u.nv laden with immense clusters 
of tb«- lovely perfumed blossoni.s. 

Rose Sioneleigh, the leader of tho 
Rioup. put out! dimpled hnger up to 
her Ilp.s, and the others, in "follow 
your lead.r " f.tyle, each raised a fing-

Presently. Ihr.mgh the window, came 
Jiie Voice of Mrs. Dunning: 

"Indeed you must stop a minute, 
Miss Slocum. You'll be all done out 
limo >on get back home again." 

"No! thankoe all the .same. I'll trv 
one more place, and thou I'll get back

"It's too bail yon can't lind anyhod/. 

What is the particular rush, just now ? 

Purely haying has not commenced with

"No; not exactly. InU Pve a sight on

p.ast stately Helen Parker, who at 11 sat 
Du the pi:izza. scratchinir awity with

"What arc you up to now Rose 
Btoncleigh ?" 

'Cati't slop lo tell any fi1>a just now, 
saitl Rose, as she tlew" np the broad 
stairway and into her room. Present- 
ly she emergetl an altogether diflfereut- 
looking person. In the place of n 
muslin she had donned a aehool-girl 
giugham. a white* apron, and a pl.ain 
linen collar, her hair all smoothed 
down to get the contrary wrinkles out 
perfectly natural von know. Down 
(die went, .stole back and seizi^d Mr*. 
Dunning's blue gingham sun-bonnet, 
ami darling to the wondering girls, 
h:id just time t.> siguul them to the 
front, when Miss Patty emerged from 
I he other side and was about to ascend 
the steps of the comical vehicle. Mrs. 
punning, turning after her, said: "I 
>':' you'll succeed in your efforts, Mi.Jss 
.">i.)i um. If I w.asn't so busv I'd let 
Seliua come up a day or two and help 
you out, but you see wo have the sem- 
inary girls— at six of them — and 
It keeps one kinder busy. Why, what 
i>n earth!" Here the good old lady 
^^ ''ad to stop in sheer amazement, for 
^c recognized her sun-bonnet coming 
toward her with a little body under- 

Rose did not stop for anything, but 
sailed up to Miss Patty, made a de- 
mure little bow and commenced: 
"Please, ma'am. I overheard your con- 
versation and thought I'd offer myself, 

if yon think I oould strip p?e-pIanT^ or 
could heip yoa in any way; and she 
dropped her white lids as though she 
Wild frightened at her own temerity. 

"You don'l look ai you Po«hi th) 
much. How nuich do ydii ckpect to 
get a weeki ftrtii where 4>(1 you como

"I came from over yoiwler some miles

.sonio money. PlenSe Vry me, and if 1 
don't tii'it * uccd ntt stay." 

"Well, soein' as how yon came in 
the nick of time, and look kind of clip- 
jRir like, I'll take you along. Have 
you any recoiuendations along." 

"Jio-o. I have not, but Mrs. Dunning 
here know.s me; she di*l not oxpcct to 
see me to-d.iy hunting a plaoc>" 
and the smiling eyes Were turned upon 
the landlord's wife, and hid by the sun- 
fjonuet, she m:ide a grimace at the 
pu/zled face that was slowly tAking 
;n the fun. 

"Oh, ye*" Cxplaiied the goo<l old la- 
tlv, '1 do know her, but I doubt her ca- 
p:d) lilies regarding house-keeping. Rnt 
•I'd try her if I were \ on. Yott hiight 
do worse." 

"Can >t)tt come right along? Pd a 
heap ratlur you would, sceia' as I'm 
clean tuckered out now." 

"Oh, yes; certainly I can. Mr.s. 
nunuing. I left my bundle, a gingiiaiu 
ami a lew other thiuu;. Inside. Will 
you have them soutP One fca.son that 
i came was that 'ora, over there, used 
to knew me and I heard that the girls 
were going to spend a part •( thttiV \a- 
cation iieic, and 'h"!?!*. 1 thought I'd 
kill twoUird^ With one stone if I could 
c.-xni a Lit while over." Mr,«. Patty 
lookeil rather suspiciously nt tho white 
dimpled lutudisi, nud it was hard telling 
what was in her thonghts, as she final- 
ly drove ofl". They went down Into 
the heart of the village, and Ro-e pulled 
the suiiboitn. t ftuihor down around 
her l«GO» AiiuiuUriu^ "that the sue was 
rather warm." 

"2«iow, wti Will have to wa t for the

will mind th^ horse i'lliu.^t drop right 
into the postollice and gel what I want. 
I expect my gt'and nephew on the train. 
:u>d if It happens to come in while I'm

nun-ie bg j?i(t chain, and tell him I'll 
be out as soon as I can git my ile and 
lamp ehimHcy.s, and other stuff Mind 
the horse now!"' 

So mu ing off she wenL 

Ros6 sal very (piiet for some minutes 
peeping from the depths of the bonnet. 
It was dreadful, this having to wait 
when .<»he was in for a frolic. Ten, 
hfteen minutes went by when, in the 
ilistance, sounded the locomotive 
wh stle. 

"Whew"' mimicked Rose, a giand- 
nepliew coming, i suppose her ideal 
(jf agood look ng is one that can do all 
manner of hard work, and a great 
gawk of a fellow he is, I know." Her 
reverie was lnterrin)Led by the stop- 
ping of the train, and the rush of pas- 
sengers getting np and olV. With a 
ting-a ling, a pull' and a snort, the 
great engirte steamed <» nt asrain with a 
long line of cars trailin g after. had all she could do to manage 
the old mare. When Doane finally 
became (]uiet. Rose looked over to 
wards the depot in search of the guilt 
cJiain, that being uppermost in her 
miuil. The passengers had all gone 
their wavs, except two; these were a 
lady and a gentleman. 

There was a cloud of dust, a car- 
riage drove up, and. amid a shower of 
greetings, the l:idy was helped in, and 
immedialtely driven oft'. Rose came to 
the conclusion that the tall gentleman 
must be the nephew aforesaid, who, 
espying Miss Patty's turnout, came 

"Excuse me, madam, but I believe 
this is Miss Patty Slocum' s rig is it not, 
and, d d she send you down for me?' 

* I'm in for it now," thcughl Rosa; 
"he thinks I'm the hired girl, no doubt, 
but I'll carry it through or die. for the 
girls would make a ^ghiug-stock of 

Aloud she said: "You can jump in if 
you like; Miss Slocum will be out pres- 
ently; she is in the postoffice. andlex- 
pect her every minute now." 

Contrary to her expectations, he seat- 
ed himself beside her, and with a polite 
"Allow mo," ho took the reins from 
her hand. 

Miss Patty's watchful eyes had taken 
in all th:it had occurred outside, and 
now appeared at the open door. 

"I'll he there m just three minutes, 
Tom; just m;ike yourself agreeable to 
the miss; she's going to help me a bit 
for :i week or so." 

"I'll wait three hours, Aunty, if you 
like; I'm not at all in a hurry;" and 
the brown eyes were as full of mischief 
as those of Rose's. Rose's were as blue 
as the sky, though they might have 
Ijecn green or yellow for all the glimpse 
Ton> could get of thcna. 

He was metally anathematizing sun- 
bonnets of all descriptions, auil wonder- 
ing if the man who invented Ihem was 
dead yet; if not, ho wanted to make a 
target of him immediately. As the be- 
ginning beneath the (to him) h deoui 
structure was rather quiet, he concluded 
to bide hi.s time, and if it prove<I inter- 
esting, he meant to have all the fun 
po.ssible during his two weeks' stay. 
He solilo(pi'zed thus: "Xow. Aunty is 
:is sharp as a steal trap, and if this little 
nfeee here does not toe the mark she 
won't have her around, but we'll fix 
things, r wish she'd throw back that 
confonndod headgear, .and let a fellow 
s«^o what she is "like." 

Presently Miss Patty, h.iving com- 
pleted her purchases, stepped out, and 
was handed Into the wagon by the 
clerk, he being glad of the excuse to 
satisfy his cariosity regarding the oc- 
cupants of the front seat. 

The sun by this time was getting very 
hot, ;iud Miss P:itty told Tom to drive 
along right smart, as she had dinner to 
get yet, and tlicy bad thi*ec miles or so 
to go. 

"Why, yes. Aunty, I k now the pre- 
cise distance; vrhy shouldn't I; when I 
lived there so many years; .seems as 
though you've more enterprising folks 
about here than there was three years 

"Well, yes; you see since them sem- 
inary girls camo seems as though it is 
livelier about here; you know the}' 
built the seminary the iall you went 

Old Doano did her best, and within 
half an hour they were in sight of a 
white house with green blinds and 
lovely trees and immense ro»e bushes. 
"Jest drive around to the back, Tom, 
I've got a lot of traps and I dout like to 

pin In 

Ing 'em clear through tho house." 
Having done as he was d'>irtred, h€ 
sprang nimbly to the j(i>ounii; ituliKxt 
Mrs. Pal^y 'dlit, iten handed her the 
Dundlcs. and lastly gave Rose a (inn 
good-sized hand aad very awkwanliy 
knocked off that terrible bonnet tlos4 
untied the strings to got a little air 
during the drive home. The blue eyol 
looked de(*ai\oe at the brown ones, 
while tho brown ones had a look that 
pleaded. "I'll never do it again, ploase. 

followed Patty into tho 
while Tom attended to old 
Everything Was its neat as a 
the little kitchen. The low 
stuffed rockers were invitirtg art<l Itosd 
sat down. Ha^iilg found lier tongue 
she Went into raptures over everything 
she saw. 

"What a deaf Mtl'c place yon have. 
?p Oid-fasiiioned and so homelike. Let 
me pare those for you. I'll do it evet 
.so thin." Having flushed her task 
she wont from one room tA another, 
and her h'igtil ways an I lignl step soon 
\\6\\ Miss Patty's esteem and Rose had 
a firm liriend forever after. 

Tom was astonished at the clear 
pretty as ho tipped the bonnet off 
her hea I. and he mentally re.solvcd 
to be on his good behavior, for as he 
told old Doane, out in the b irii, "blile 
e\-e9. bi-oWn haifi sh(»rl aii I plun^ii, and 
it Will rtf her 6Wn, Which shows itself iri 
their blue depths; full of fiin, though,'

n'attiVge it; and don't tell aimty until it's 
:dl fi.xed. we'll marry her. That is. 
of course, providing she isn't spoken 
for before this and will have us you 

Doane neighed as tho'.igh she under- 
stoo<l everything, but Tom gave her a 
whole peck of oats in his absent mind- 
ed ness. 

Two — three weeks glided by. Tom 
wa? a model of good behavior. Miss 
Patty was delighted at the succe s of 
her preserving. Rose Icarnrjd the art 
of butter making; artd she niMe Tdni 
pick cherries and in a hundred ways 
mftde himself generally usefdl; aiid 
though he protected he Was sinfully 
abused he cdilld liot keci^ out of the 

When the three weeks were up Rose 
decided to tell Patty that she was 
only a seminary girl, and that she must 
go honie to spend the holidays. 

"I'll tell you what. Rose, if you and 
Tom here will hitch horses you might 
stay right along. " 

"Hurrah for Aunt Fatty!" shouted 
Tom, "what do you say, Rose, will you 
be my wife?" 

"Oh, Tom Sh>cum. I have not known 
you but three weeks; besides, what 
would my folks s.ay? and don't you 
know, Tom the ohl .<<aying. that a 
change of nanio and not of letter. \h a 
change for worse and not for better? I 
am only a school-girl, Tom, and would 
make you a mad-cap wife." 

"I'll soon tamo j'ou." laughed Tom. 
"We will write to father and mother— 
you see I clainl th6rii already— and 1 
(Id hot want my wife to be tdo learned. 
Say yes, Rose, and I will attend to all 
the difficulties and the old saying won't 
be true in our case." 

Aunt Patty, who meanwhile s!it ston- 
ing cherries, now spoke again: "Tom 
is a good boy. Rose, and yon might do 
a great sight worse, '8i<les 1 want to 
sec him settled in life before I die." 

"Well, you are both so determined, 
you m.ay have me, Tom, for better or 
tor worse, mind, 1 warn you, it might 
be for the worse." 

"V>^'11 take all the risk.s,'' cried hap- 
py Tom Slocum. 

So in just a month from that day, 
Rost! .Stoneleiwh became tho bride of 
Tom Slocum, ami a happier coii pie nev- 
er existed, and her five bridesmaids 
were the girls who sat on the verando 
of the hotel. Though some of them arc 
grandmothers now, they never forget 
their wild little leader, Rose Stoneleigh^ 

Curious Clocks. 

When the Emperor Charles V. of 
.Spain retired to the monaster)' of St. 
Yuste, he took with him Torriano, his 
clockmaker, in order to while away the 
time by constructing movements of 
clocks. So wondertul were some of 
the pieces of work which they made 
that the monks would not believe that 
.any one except the devd had a hand iu 
them until the machinery was shown 
to them by the ex-emperor. It was 
ordered by Charles that when he shouM 
die all these clocks should cease running 
— and it is said to be a fact thiit his or- 
ders were obeyed. 

Another king of Spain came to Gen- 
eva to see a clock which had been ma<lo 
by Droz, a merchant of that city. Up- 
on the clock were seated a shepherd, a 
negro and a clog. As the hour was 
struck the shephenl phiyed upon his 
flute, and tlw tlog playe<l gently at his 
feet. But when tlie king reached forth 
to touch iin apple that hung from a 
tree, under which a shephard rested, 
the dog flew at him and b:uked so furi- 
ously that a live dog answered him, an 1 
the whole party left in hiisto. Ventur- 
ing to return, one of the couriers asked 
the negro in Spanish what time it was. 
There was no reply. Juit when the ques- 
tion was repeated in French an answer 
was given. Tliis frightened the cour- 
ier, who rejoined his companion.s. and 
all of them voted that the clock was the 
work of. the evil one. 

Upon the belfry ot the Kaiithaus, in 
Coblentz. there is the head of a giant — 
bearded and helmeted with brass. The 
giimt's head is known as "the man iu 
the custom-house;" and whenever a 
countryman meets a citizen of Coblentz 
away from thtit place, instead of say- 
ing: "How are all our friends in Co- 
blentz!" he asks: "How is the man in 
the custom-house?" At every stroke 
of the i)ell which sounds the honr upon 
the clock, the mouth of the giant opens 
and shuts with great force, as if it were 
tryingtosay in the words of Longfel- 
low: "Time was — Time is — Time is 
past." — Popular Science Monthly.

Who hftV«4 riVett IH K litt)^ cbUlitf^

remember witli what awe tliey looked 
upon everything oountcted with the 
local printing Ittoe. , The typo-sotting 
was marvelou.4, tho distilbittliig of the 
typo Was wonderful, and the printing 
of the paper on the old hdnd pn^ss Avns

lo witness, but tlie grfiat wonder was 
the casting bf a tipvy fQllcr^ Thio cditHr 
would Apologise tor tlie looks of the

and in the stores and groceries where 
bo loafed, and say he had got to cast a 
new roller, and when ^nybotly would 
ask hd\V ii wits done ho would look 
mvsterious, anti toll them to come in 
some day next -week, after the paper 
w;isout. Hundreds would ask what 
tho roller was m.tde of, and he would 
tell them a lot of lies, but when the 
eventful day would come to cast the 
roller, it would be discovered 111 tit the 
l-ollel' was made of molasses arid iriue; 
'I'ho hottest day in the .«uranier. woiild 
W .selected to caj^t tile roller, and early 
on that day a fire would be built in tho 
old rusty ofHce stove, which would be 
filled with oily paper, and would burn 
out tho chimney llie first lhiug,an«l call 
out the bucket brigade. After the chim- 
ney was burned out everybody 'Would 
hsk nbout the fire* and tb4 infol-iunlion 
that the boys at the printing oMce wct'e 
casting a new roller would go abroad, 
and the whole town wmlld be :t talking 
about it 'i'he editor would gd down to 
the drug store in his shirt sleeves and 
buy a quantity of glue, and show it lo 
everybody on the streets, an. I tell them 
ho was going to (5li*t n n«^ i\)ller. 
Then he wPiUd take i tin pa I Uud go 
down and buy some molasses, and stop 
on the street to tell everybody it was 
to be tised In fciistlflg i new roller. 
Then the molasses and ghio woulit be- 
gin to cook, and a peculiar smelt would 
pervade the business part of the town, 
and when anybody asked what th« 
smell was he wonUI t^ told that i\itf 
were cAiiliing a new rirtler at tlie ^priii^ 
Ing ollicc. The editcr apd pMnters 
would le.ive tho office on account of the 
heat, and stand on the street corners 
and talk about casting the roller, and 
leave the devil to keep a fire and stir 
np the moTnssefl and glue. Nothing 
would be talked about during the sleepy 
summer <lay, but the new roller. The 
merchants who usually piliched qiloits 
in the shade back of the stdres; would 
leave the game to listen tO the editor 
talk alx>nt casting a now roller. Finally 
the devil would come down to where 
the editor was leaning against a railing, 
with some of the cooked roller com- 
position on a pnperi aiHl the -edit- 
tor Iruidd iexamlfke \i britieal^-.i 
and say It was about right, 
and ha would ask the crowd to go up in- 
to the oflice to see the roller cast. The 
crowd would go up, and stand around 
the hot stove for an honr and mop 
prespiration off their faces, while the 
editor jrot tho roller mold and greased 
it inside, and put the core into it To' 
watch the editor, one would think it 
was the momentous occasion of his life. 
Finally, when the vistiors were all 
nearly melted, and were leaning out of 
the %vindows for u breath of ali', the 
editor would stir up the molasses and 
gltie for the last time, and take the 
pail and get upon a cha'r, and pour the 
composition into the cast-iron mold, 
and the work be done, under the anx- 
ious superintendence of the perspiring 
leading ctizens, and there would b^ a 
half holiday for the roller to cool and 
to let the printers get out of the heat 
of the oflice. But the editor would go 
,■ around town all the afternoon and tell 
the meat-market man and the black- 
smith and the men sitting on the grind- 
stones in front of the hiirdwarc store 
iind every body he met, that he had 
cast the roller and he wondered how it 
Wouhl come oUl of the mold in the 
morning. Casting a roller in a countrv 
printing-office twenty years ago, was an 
event to be talked about for a month.

Feeding Bees in May. 
Large quantities of brood aro reared 
in this month, and after the red buds 
of the soft maple have put forth their 
heads there will be plenty of natural 
pollen for the bees to gather. If there 
are no maples in your immediate vicin- 
ity, take some unbolted rye-oflur, mix 
il with saw-dust or cut straw and set 
in a sunny corner, sheltered from the 
wind, when, if the bees require it, they 
will carry it freely. In localities where 
there is honey in the blossoms .at this 
season, the bees will gather it very 
rap <lly, and the more honey they get 
the fststcr the stock Where 
thtTe are not cnou;zh honey-producing 
flowers, by all means feed, at the en- 
trance, .'^ay about a gill of hot feed 
every night. By feeding thus, your 
stock.s will increase very rapidly, and

Again, should there be honey in the 
blossoiU'*, and cold aiul wintry weather 
set in, feed *as above, for should the 
we.ather contiuue cold, the bees would 
naturally commence to destroy the 
work .already accompli.shcd, by 
tearing out and tlestroving the hatch- 
ing brood. If you keep your bees for 
increase alone, feed them every night, 
and continue to do so until honey can 
be gathered in abundance. — Amtrican 

Spme Advice to Wives.

man and not to a god; be prepared for

husband that you are "only a woman"' j 
if you were not he would not care aboilt 

Once in a while let your husband 
have the word; it will gratify him

Remember that servants are made of 
the same material as you are; a little 
coarser grained, perhaps, but the same 
in essentials. 

Try and forget yourself; as to your 
husband, forget that yoh married him, 
.and remember that he married you; 
he will then probably do the reverse. 

Let him read the newspaper at the 
brc.akfast-table; it is un.iociable. but 
then, it is only a trifle, after all, and 
he likes it. 

Let him know more than you do

respect, and you are none the worse 
for admitting you are not 

Re:id something in the papers beside 
fashion notes and society colums; have 
some knowledge of what is going on 
in foreign countries.

he is a wise man; and if he is not, try 
to make him become your comn:uuou. 
Raise his standard, do not let him low-

Eleven Year-Old 

Mr. C. V. Richards, yf Ward No. 2. 
tells us of au o<ld occurrence near his 
home last week. He and others went 
out for a deer drive when the dojfs ?ot 
up three an«l chased them .so cloae that 
they jumped into his field. His little 
son. Wychie, aged about eleven year.s, 
was along, joined in the chase, running 
his horse at breack-ncck spee<l and pres- 
sing them so closely that they attempt- 
ed to avoid him by jumping over three 
loff.s lying close together. The largest 
one suecocded-inr making the jump, but 
the other two struck against the third 
log and killed themselves, one of them 
being killed outright and the other 
being dispatched by Mister WycMe* 
who dismounted and finisned the one 
which had only been stunned^ We dare 
say that this circumstance, coupled with 
the grit and activity of the little fellow 
who performed the exploit, has never 
been cquiUed iu this State. — Co(/'ax

Some Singular Suicides. 
An incident occurred in Salem yes- 
terday which likely will not be repeat- 
etl in a half dozen centuries. An Eng- 
lish sparrow was building a nest in 
the poarch of Mr. E. A. Kl)«rt'a resi- 
dence, and carricil a string to Uie nest, 
an<l had itpai;tially woven in when it 
attempted to lly, and by some means 
the other end of the stri'ig became cn- 
4jiDarl(^<^ around ita head, and held it 
fast tethered by the neck. The help- 
less little creature became frightened 
and fluttered and sUuggloil iu vain to 
free itself. The miniature noose only 
closed tighter about its throat till final- 
ly it dropped dead — hung by the neck 
ns neatly as a human hand could have 
|lane it. The incident, which probably 
has not a duplicate in history, recalls 
one of a 84ymcwhat similar character 
with regard to a horse. He was graTiing, 
and had ou a luUfecr with a short rein 
dangling from his head. The horse's 
tail was sliort and stubby, and in throw- 
ing his head arouml to sc.tre off a fly, 
the iMridle-rein got hitched over the 
tail. The horse, finding his head fas- 
tened, beoame excited, enre a violent 
jerk of his head, which broke his neck 
and resulted iu instant death. — Winston

Ctirious Clocks. 

When ihe Kmperor Chailps V. of 
.Spain retired to the monastery of .St. 
Yu«te, he took with him Torriano. his 
elockmaker, in or.fer to while away the 
lime bv constructing movements ol 
clocks. So wondertnl were some of 
the pieces of work which they niado 
that the monks would not believ.- that 
any one i-M-ejit the dev.l had a hand in 
them until the machinery was shown 
to them by tlie ex-emperor. It was 
ordered In Charles that when he should 
die all these clocks -hoiild cease running 
- and it is said to bo a fad that his oi - 
ilers were obeyed. 

Another king of Spain came to flen- 
era lo si'«> a clock which bail be«»n made 
by Dro/.. a meichanl of that city. I'p- 
oi: the clock were seale.l a sheplK-r.l. a 
negro aii'l a dog. .\s the hour was 
struck the shepherd played upon his 
llnte. and llf- dog pl.ived gently al his 
feet. Hut when 1 lie kill;; reached forth 
to I'lUch ;in .-ipple tliat hung from a 
lr.*c, under which a sliephar<I rested, 
the do^ flew at him aiul bark.-.l so fiii-i- 
oiisly that a live do;; answen-d him, ,in I 
the whole party left in hast.^. Ventur- 
ing to retiiin, one of the conra-rs asked 
the iie;jro in .Sjianish what time it was. 
There was no replv. tout when the ipi -s- 
lion was repeatcl in French an answer 
was ;;iyen. This fii;;litened the cour- 
ier, who r.-joincl his companions, and 
all of them vot.'d that the i-lock wastli.- 
work of the evil one. 

I.'pon tin* Iwlfry ot tin' Kauthau'. in 
Coblcnt/. there is the head of a giant — 
bearded and helnieted with hrass. The 
giant's head is known as '•the man iii

Feeding Bees in May, 
Large (|uantities of brood are reared

will carry it freely. In loc.ilities where 
lliere is honey in the blos.soms al this 
season, the bees will gather it very 
lap dly. and tin- more honey they get 
the faster I he stock increases. Where

the iteneral law was In-ing esia>.lished, for very 
obvious reasons. It would be quite impossible to 
introduce considerable chanees in the branch of 
the law which concerns s) Intimately the com- 
merce of the country without serious con-ic- 
ipiencsa to some private intcreats. In all such 
cases incidental InJnHes. however L-reat they 
may Ije, must necessarily be borne for the gen-

the reasons for doing this were thouuht by;8 in many cases absolutely Imperative 
and to concern the Interest of the public quite 
as much ns that of the roads themselves Tho 
lnterts;s involved in tho (Jue^'tton were very 
Kreat. and the anticipation of serious injurv 
irom any sudden chaiiKo was in some quarieri 
qnito Kcncral. The eonimission. therefore, h8<l 
very eariiest.»pp?als made to it in support of 
corporate applications for relief from boards of

tlTts of largo business interests which feftred or 
professed lo fear flestruction or bankruptcy, lu 
many cases appcaN scem<;d to bo made in the 
IH-Ilef that the prolKibility of injury was of itself 
sntncient warrant for I lie commission to inter-

necessary to say to yon that any such belief was 
without iLifal sni.pori. Thi uronnd for suspen-

for relief without givlnif tho commis-

a purpose to sive such powlr. If the law In Its 
general operations were to prove generally and 
equally ml»elit<«vous in nil direction.s, commis- 
sion, instead of having greater power for that 
reason would on the other haml have no power 
of suspension whatever, for tho simple, plain 
roasoij that there would then tie no exceptional

Tfce Mset7-MBth Uenersl Ansembly. 

The until General Assembly of the F'rori- 
byterian Church commenced ntOmalia on 
the lltth inst. OviT 500 delegates attend- 
ed. On the first day the principal busi- 
ness was the election of a new moderator 
for the ensuinc year. There were four can- 
didates: Rev. Dr. Joseph Smith of Balti- 
more; Rev Ransom B. Welch, Auburn, 
^ew \ork; Rev. Colviu B. Stewart of Col- 
eraine; Rev. J. McClelland Holmes, Albany 
:T I"'"''- T*'° ballets were 

taken. The second ballot resulted in the 
election of Rev. Joseph Smith, who receiv- 
od 278 votes. The new moderator was 
born in 1818 in Mercer county, Pennsyl- 
vania. He has been in the ministry for 
forty-five years, and for the past twenty^ 
hvo years has been pastor of the Central 
Presbyterian church of Baltimore. He is 
a tall, commanding, genteel looking gentle- 
man. Four temporary secretaries were 
then appointed. 

There are V.iO presbyteries, 20 synods 
u,.)4G ministers, G.'JSl churches and (".(il,' 
809 c<»mmunicants in the fiiited St.ites 
according to the statistics of 188(;. and 
this year's figures will probably show a 
membership of over 1,000,000. For the 
year ending April, 1880, the Presbyterian 
church of tho I'uited States contributed 
$1,411,107 to homo and foreign missions

Tho Trade of Uat Week. 

R. O. Dun <fe Co., in their weekly trade 
Review of the 2l8t say: The moat import- 
ant news of tho week if confirmed is that 
Ihe interstate commerce comiiiihsion will 
revoke all temporary suspensions of the 
haul clause, terminating them July I. The 
revolution In business must therefore jiro- 
gross until its full effects have been real- 
ized. Some of them arc seen in the con- 
tracts taken by tho Canadian Pacific to 
move eastward the wool crop of California 
and ten million pounds of sugar, and in 
the marked revival of shipments around 
the Horn. Others ajipear in tho decline of 
trade at the larger centers of distribution 
and manufacture, and an increase of dis- 
tribution at smaller towns, with the up- 
springing of new mnnufacturiiig works at 
many localities. Most of the labor trou- 
bles seem to grow out of a narrowed field 
for tho distribution of products. There- 
ports are still generally encouraging, with 
no instance of unusual.dclay in collections. 
Uhere business is deemed dull it is, in ev- 
ery case, pronounced larger than at thff

Washington. Special Telegram, May 18.— 
As has frequently been the case In this ad- 
ministration, the president has had his way 
m spite of Col. Laraont's declaration that it 
would all be left to Secretary Lamar, and but 
one appointment has been made at Duluth. 
As far as that goes, however, the secretary 
has had his way, and Charles C. Ma^nnis of 
Morris, the man who was recommended by 
him. was appointed receiver to-day. 
Whether the secretary will eventually suc- 
ceed In securing a successor to Mr. Marble 
will depend upon how far Mr Sparks in- 
sists on the vindication of his dtjrniry, and 
what lact he can b«ck it up with in present- 
ing his case lo the president. As to Mr. Ma- 
pinnlF, his hcnrtieft th.nnks are due to F. B 
Chew of his own town of Morris. Mr. Chew 
has been here for over three weeks working 
quietly buc presistcntly for Maginnis. Not 
a day has passed that fie has not seen the 
president, Secretary Lamar, Lamoni or the 
tipi>ointment clerk of tue interior depart- 
ment in the interest of his friend. He made 
a deep impression upon the luesident. the 
secretary and Commissioner Sparks, and his 
urecnt indorsement did more than anythinnr 
else to secure Mr. Maginnnis tho place. No 
hope was given him, however, and he left 
here for home at 11 o'clock this morning

lief, the marquis was about to leave the 
country, and had disposed of all his pro- 
perty with intent to defraud bis creditors 
Mr. t.rimshaw has a suit pending against 
I)e Mores for breach of contract. 
He claims that hu contracted to 
assist the inanjuis, or the Con- 
sumers' Meat fompany, to obtain contro 
of the retail butchi^r stores in .Ni-w York 
and was to be paid in stork and made a 
director of the company. Ho alleges that 
he carried out his part of the agreement, 
and spent large sums in advertising the 
great co-operative scheme, but has found 
that the manpiis had no syndicate of syn- 
dicate of capitalists backing liini as claim- 
ed, and that the whole scheme had fallen 
through. He therefore seeks to recover 
damages. The marquis furnished J2,500 
bail and was released.

Dr. Mays, superintendent of the Stockton

produce two-thirds of the insane, and yet 
the proportion of insaneint alifornia is iiot 
tn excess ofthntin many states— about .me 
to every ;5(;o inhabitants. Thedoctor thinks 
that the prime caiisesof insanity are intem- 
perance nnd neglect of the laws of health. 
••It is in the second generations that the evil 
works its most harm. One-half of the insane

indolent woman, was in utter de- 
spair at these escapades. 

"But, mademoiselle: I forbid you 
'.o i;o alone! " she cried. "It is not 
rotnme il faut for the Countess dc 
Matipas.sant to wander about alone, 
lik» one of the lonimon ohildii^n." 

"Then I wish 1 was a common peas- 
ant child!" the littlelady cried, stnmp- 
'iiil her feet an:;rily. "'rhey have cot 
'hildrtn to i>la,y with them,* and I ve 
;ot nobody but you and Bonne 
Marie; and yoff arc ol.i, ol<l, and you 
ran't jump and run and play. I will 
(!0 by my.self; an<l if you watch ine or 
try lo follow me, madanie, I will no 
outside the jjate and run away to 
Paris. There now!" 

Poor Madame Diiloc shook and 
shivered at this threat. Slie knewth- 
[liiM would keep her word, and then 
what would happen? As for punish- 
ing; her refractory charae as she de- 
served, that she knew was utterly im- 
possible, and would cost her an easy 
and kicrative situation. i>o she 
^akly strove to comniomiso. 

"If you would only take Celine, 
mademoiselle, then you might stay 
out as lon<; as you please." 

"But I am running; away from Celine 
and everybody!" she cried impatient 
ly. "I hate to be watched, and if yon 
will do it, I will run away. I will go 
wh'.'ie I choose." 

l^oor Madame Duloc raised her 
hands and oyes in despair, but, before 
this will go she knew she was power- 
less. See did what she could; she ex- 
acted a promise from Blanche that 
sho would never ;;o beyond the park 
u'lites. Wiltul and mmovernable as 
the little Countess was. slie had never 
broken her word, so Madame Duloc 
was forced to yield the point. She 
woiiid climb laboriously to the liiiih 
tower, and watch the child through 
the fields, .•ind until she was lost in the 
recesses of the forest. ]}ut after .a 
time, when Bl.'inche came in regularly, 
i;lowirig with health and ready to 
study more stdulously than she had 
ever done, she ceased her esjiion-age. 

The lonely little girl found her life 
Full of intrcst now. She made tricnds 
with the birds and sijuinels, and all 
the wild things of the field and for- 
est. She was .a warm-hearto 1, loving 
little creature, tho'.igh her best impul- 
ses had been repressed by her arti- 
ficial iifo, and it was her great est pleas- 
nre tostop an<l chat with old Tlieriol, 
Ihe ganieiicr, and his Jissistants, who 
were alvv.iys bii.^y about the urounds. 
One be;uitifiil sprin;: morning, in her 
wanderings tlirouijh the siiaciotis 
laideiis, JJIanclie en me to an arch 
twined with the fniL'rant Provence 
rose, then in full bloom. They were 
hieh above her reach, nor was there a 
foothold on the arch wl ere she ccuid 
"limb. She looked firound. No one 
was in siyhf but a tall lad, who was 
we( ding one of the beds. 

"Meie, garcon, come and cet ma 
some roses." 

He camo obediently, and gatliered 
her a large cluster. 

"You are very tall," she said, "to 
ren:'li up there. Where do you live, 
!tnd how old arc you?" 

"lam sixteen," and, mademoiselle, 
I live hero. I am Andre Tlieriot." 

"All. you .•lie the the saidener Ther- 
iot's son. i likt him." nodding her 
heail gravely. "He is a good man. 
He lets me jiick the nectarines mys«>lf. 
Do you wjtiit a rose, .Vndrc?" holding 
out one, with the ;iir of a yoting em- 
press. An 111' put out his liaixl for it, 
when >Iie drew it back, with a nii.s-

linard voices and Jaujiiler in the litth; 

Pu.ihini; open the door, ho saw ti 
«igbt which nearly struck him dumb. 
Side hy side on the b'r'iich sat the rep- 
resentative of the Maupassants ami 
a boy. Tliey were bendi!^.• 
6V"r the same book, and the colden 
curls of Bian'he i:iiii<.'l.d with the 
black hair of her companion. 

"Blanche!" ctijd the Count, in a 
voice 01 thunder. 

The little yirl spraiii.' JO her fe«-t,

"What are yon douit; witli Ibaf 

"t am teaching him to rva'i. j-apa," 
The little girfu tones did not falter, 
though she was horribly ft i::ijtened. 

"Teaching him to read"' the count 
was so furiou.s that iiis vo!''-r.'-emb]e<l. 
"Back with you to the 
wicked child, aial I will settle witii 
you later. But you, you base-born, 
insoknt peasant, J will lash you likt

ridiii2-whip. bit* Blanche sei/ed it and 
confronted him with a pale face and 
flashing eyes. 

"You siiail )iot strike bin), papa'" 
she cried. "I made Kim come. He 
dared not refuse. Jf you strike Any 
one, strike me, for I did it." 

Andre through hi.s whole life never 
forgot that jiicture. The man with 
his face convulsed by fury, th» little 
girl looking up with her brave eyes, 
ready and willing tosuiTerin liis stead. 
After ff minute the Count Bee.-iied to 
recover hinijelf. 

"Go away from here, 4ioy," he cried, 
"for if ever I meet you a^ain I will cut 
off your ears and vour tongue! You 
to want to learn! Bah!" 

This was no idit- threat at that time 
in I-^an<;e. The grand Seigneurs had 
the liberty of mutilating, or even kill 
inu their vassals at theuown free wilj. 
and the boy knew that his father't 
house was no longer safe for lifTn 
But Ids thirst for knowledge, begun 
by the lessons of his little inistressi. 
led him to a Jesuit colleg<\ where his 
uncle, a priest, was oik- of the pro 
lessors. There he r-mained for* six 
years, while f he thunders of the great 
I^evoiiition were growlinz in the dis- 

\Vhen .'Vndre left college, the guillo-

greatest and noblest names in France. 
His education and ability and hatreij 
of aristor.icy soon secaired him. a po.'i 
tion oi confidence with I^etion, one ot 
the lievoiutionary leadcis. 

Andre shuddered at the bloodshed 
and violence which had turned I'"'rancc 
into a buicher's sh.imbles, but thf,n 
he dreamed that the outcome would 
be liberty. 

ha bad heard that the Chateau oi 
Btaujolais had been burnt to tiii 
ground, and the count and his dancli- 
ter luid escajied. Where the count had 
gone he kiifW not an.l cared less, but 
lie knew that Blanche had been con- 
cealed by old Theriot, hi.« father, who 
had been to his young mistress 
ill Her hour ot jieril. He had nevei 
seen her since that fateful day wh-n 
tluy had been surprised i.y h«^i lather, 
but bis Liatitude and .■i!ino>t adora 
tion had never lessened, thie day in

"You sh.ill c.irn to read Andre!"

me and prevent me, I had flashed in- 
to the house, an<l hjid shut and bolt- 
ed the door. 

ITo waited then; he waited, I should 
think, an hour. And I sat. inside, 
burning with anger, and \vith an un- 
oonscioiH ^cn.stj of shame, very hkely, 
at\d a bitter disappointment, and 
a wild, unnamed fear. And at last ho 
roso slowly and looked at the win- 
tlows, and tinned away and called old 
IJolan.l.and went slowly dowh the lane. 
And he tieyer came back. I could 
see him walking along, ever so slowly, 
in the elear moonlight^ with thd dog's 
noso in his hand, 'till tlie road tiu-ned 
into the Wood that mounted the hill. 
Atul when lie had gone I }\\?X threw 
myself on the tloov, and all but dis- 
solved «M iiiy mad tears. Andldidn't 
kr.ow what the tears were for— wheth- 
er for f>>ar of losing Mark, or for, fear 
of losing my home, or for ^'.u ol giv- 
ing ui> my wi'l; but it .seemed to me 
th.-'t tlie end of the world had as good 
;is come. 

We were both orphans, we both had 
these great prooTt'.'cs. and we had 
both I'e'tn have been beggars. 

'I'hat wjis June, and the full moon. 
I didn't sleep any that night I b.aiii- 
iy know why; a pet-t^ntlment of evil 
kept m« w.-iki'.'.g, although I was so 
tit'xl I remember that moon now, 
hanging in the jjiuple sky, with her 
wide wings, like .'i girr.l boding t'host. 
Mvery time I looked out, there she 
w-'.f. Uy-and-by she began tofr'gh'en 
me, and I shut iier oor, [mi lay awake 
all the same, u\\, mind in a wilil whirl. 

Th- r.ext evening, in the long after- 
glow ot the siuiset, I tripped down 
the lane to the wood, sure that I 
should meet him, as I had always 
done, on his Way to me: but the shape 
I liad been used tosee bounding down 
the path 1 did not see again. I went 
elose to the shadow of the wood, but 
only old Koland eame nnd put bis 
nose in my han<l, and. wailed with me 
while I waited, an<l went back wilh 
me a little way when I went back. It 
did not o.cur to me to think that 
where Uoland "-ar, 'uis master was not 
far di-tfi'iU. And I went down the 
laiie no more. 

After that, then, one dav ei-ept b^, 
and another, >u»','. Uio continued in 
tbe old Tvay, and all the business of 
the great farm thrived in the hands 
of IJryan, the directing overseer, and 
all seemed to be mere idleness. 7.'he 
moving machines weie humming all 
day in the meadows, and the huge 
loads of fragrant hay came laboring 
into the barns, and thunder clouds 
made panics, and the liahtning fell, a.* 
it always did on the wet low g-oundr«, 
and burned one or two liay-slacks; 
and then tlif< g'.'.mielows went down 
the ri\':r ior the salt liay, and came 
'.^-aik, daysa'terward, with their <]ark, 
stjuare sails .set atop o' their s(piare 
leads of thal',h, and one by one all 
th,; eon, erns of ripenina; and* harvest- 
ing had their .season, and past, atid 
August was over. Am' ^mrk hatl 
never once been up Ic) the lane again; 
and ."Jeplember had gone, and the 
bnrvesl-moon; and the hunter's moon 
had poured its silver floods of light 
out of a great lonely heaven; and still 
Mark had never come. 

I suppose Mrs. Wells, my next 
neighbor, know all about it. .\nd 
.Mrs. Sawyer, oi> the other sice, Of 
course knew all that Mr.s. Wells did. 
They were very good to me, and they 
and the girls were always running in 
to see me, or sending for me to run in 
and see them. I don't think I was 
trying to carry things otY with a high 
hand, and 1 know I wasn't hanging 
my head and crying over what was 
not to be helped; I simply made up 
my mind to the inevitable. I was 
never ^loing to have Mark beside me 
any more, and I must endure it, and 
get throut:h life as well as I could. 
I had thi.s farm on my hands, and all 
the peoi)le who had their livinii from 
it, and I must do my duty. Ami per- 
haps in time fate would bo kindtr, 
and give me a fever or cough, and let 
melieilown and die; and ho would 
come then ami look on me, and re- 
UHMuber how I had loved him, and bo 
sorry. And thinking how sorry he 
would l>e was a ioy I hugged to 
heart, and the onlj joy I had. 

Hut I used to long so sometimes to 
see Mark's dear face again, to hear his 
voice, just to lay my head on his 
shouKbr and cry my eyes out there. 
Sometimes it used to seem to me that 
f couldn't live ,'inotlier minute if I 
didn't run down that lane and up 
through the wood to the old house on 
the rock and find him, and bee him to 
forgive me— forgive, oh, not just that 
liurst of temper, but the whole rebel- 
lion of my soul— and comeback tome; 
and sometimes I felt that Imust take 
some sleeping i)Otion that would keep 
me benumbed till the pain had parsed, 
or else must throw myself into the 
river always ruiming by, brimmed and 
shinini: and indilYerent. 

And I began to hate the river— the 
river that 1 bad u.sed to love so in the 
sunshine, all blue and silver; that 1 
had loved so, ditnpling in its soit grays 
in rainy wi-ather; where I had never 
tired of seeing the ice-boats dart aloni- 
when it l.iy white under its wintiy 
mail— the river that now, in my grief 
and trouble and weariness, Mowed 
past as calmly as if I had never been 
it. How could it be so irresponsive, 
rolling on bright and strong and 
stea<ly, giving me back no .sympathy 
now in my sorrowful mood, giv- 
ing me even no vantage-ground?— for 
I should have had to wade into it if I 
had wanted to drown myself. Yes, 1 
began to hate the river. I began to 
hate, too, these lo g, tiresome, mo- 
tionless levels of the grass lands— Oh, 
so flat, so monotonous, so low! "One 
is simply under-ground here," I said 
to myself, "(hie has really not the 
air to breathe. One becomes like 
those slugs that live under the damp 
side of a stone. I am under a stone 
myself. Oh, for just a breath of air 
from some point a little way up the 
sky!" I began to hate, I say, the 
long green grass fields; and than I be- 
gan to hate the farm life. "It is dull, 
sordid, base work, let them say what 
they please," said I, •'from the pitcii- 
iiig about of the barn-y.ard muck to 
the last results of it. It is all non- 
sense about its being the one noble 
occupation. So is the cook's, then, 
too. ' And I hated the great cattle in 
the yard, the smell of the frothing 
p-iils of milk, tiie click of the stanch- 
ions, the cheese-making, the butter- 
packing— everything that belonued to 
all the dull round of the farm duties. 
I went about to :i<ee the work done, 
and said a word to the maids, here, 
the men there; and I went and sat 
down by my kindling autum fire, and 
felt that if I had to live here forever I 
had better die and be done with it. I 
had rather die and be done with it 
anyway, If I was never to see Mark 
any more; but then that was no new- 

Do what I would, my thoughts 
would follow IMark. Was he there 
alone in his father's house? Was he 
riding gayly round the country, visit- 
ing other houses, other girls happier, 
than I, hearing music, joining in laugh- 
ter? Or was hetrcivelingoflin distant 
regions, .seeing new sights and for::et- 
tinc the old, forgetting the past and 
me in fresh experience? Or was he sit- 
ting at home there in the long dim 
room whose windows looked through 
the pine-wood vista over the broad 
valley and away to the blue mount- 
ains? No one told me; no one ever 
ventured to mention his name to me. 
Hut somehow I placed him there inthe 
long dim room, and there my fancy 
kept following him and hovering about 


him. Now he sat by the fireside there, 
in the deep chair, reading; now he was 
busy with maps and pictures at the 
table; now, in the big bay, the mtTon- 
light, that had pal© green reflexions in 
it cast up from th« emerald depths of 
the woods below, fell about him. 
I dare say that, in reality, busy 
about the place and his affairs of ono 
sort or another, and doing his best 
to live and to forget, he was very little 
in that room; but there J chose to 
place him; and It grewstraiigely sweet 
to me, and every moment when I 
could sit down alone my lancV look 
me and I ent dovVn in that room, or 
else I wandered up and down the 
great staircase and the luill where his 
l)eoplo'H »>e»rtr:ilto iuing, ou*.^ 1 always 
came back again to the hearth of tiie 
long dim room if it were day. to the 
dancing lire-cast shadows there if it 
were night, nnd^he pl<ic«,firew dearer 
and ci'Mrrr to me every hour, and 1 
tipbraided myself in thoughts too bit- 
ter for speech for the lolly and angry 
temper that had shut me out of it, had drawn cotnparison between 
tliat nncient lolty plaee and this low 
and tiresome stretch of nothing but 
common grass land.s,. betweW that 
manor "ud thi* plain larm-hoiUc, al- 
though in real truth my farm house, 
was quite its equal at any other time. 
But tlie new year eame in without a 
sign from Mark or a sign from me; 
an<l the eountry was white with snow, 
and the river ice wa** ftroiigenough to 
bear UP slrilgcs and teams of horses, 
an 1 the iceboats were splitting the 
wind before them. It a!l made no 
odds to me. I wascompletely wretch- 
e«i. I didn't pretend to go to church 
or to any of the society meetings, and 
it the Sawyers and came to 
me, I suppose I treated them prop- 
erly—I'm sure I don't know— but I 
never set my foot out-doors the win- 
ter long. 

There were furious storms that win- 
ter, 'riie snow fell a.s 1 hover ffetnim 
bered it before. The drifts poenHd to 
wall us in.fijom all the Woild. "A liv- 
i"g triuib,' 1 used to murmer. "I wish 
It were a tomb indeed, and I in my 
last sleep." .\t twenty, one can be so 
very mi.serable; and at thirty, if one 
lives so long, orie can be so profane 
as to laugh at it. 

Sometimes Bryan and Thomas 
brought word of the outside regions, 
of the way people up-river were sleigh- 
riding over the tops of fences, of the 
immense snow-fall inthe mountians, 
and tlie fears of what would happen 
fro .11 it in the spring if there should be 
an early thaw. And I renien^beeed 
somw words thftt Al.irk Used t'J quote 
from a play he had seen, "When this 
snow melteth thereshall come a flood." 
I didn't care how many floods ^anle. 

.\nd so, with -torm after storm, the 
winter wore away, .lane and Maria at 
their home-keeping task?, and I busv 
with my rugmaking, hooking strips of 
woollen cloth through coflee-bags, not 
because the house wa3 not full of 
them, but because I had nothing bet- 
ter to do. Fori couldn't read; if I 
tiied my eyes swan, and I could not 
make out a word of what it was all 
about. And people went and came 
like shadows; and the days had grown 
short, and now they grew long, and 
what did it all matter to mef 

.March had come, but without ri sigrt 
of the Winter's breaking; and tlien at 
last April loitered on, and April suns 
be^an to do their work; and gradually 
the drifts of snow in the lanes and in 
fields to .settle, and to lessen 
and melt and dissapear. And Hryan 
and Thomas had to talk of the brcJod- 
ing hens, and watch for the breaking 
up of the river, and discuss the chance 
of the early rye and tlie new calves 
and the hiring of the spring luinds; 
and it w-as all emptiness. And one 
day it began to snow, and the snow 
turned to rain, and it rained that day 
and rained in rivers, and it rained the 
next day.and it rained till it had rain- 
ed a week— a long, dreary week that 
bade fair to end only in deluge. And 
on Saturday the sun came out warm; 
and when I looked, the crocuses 
bloomed under the windows, and 
Thomas said it was very like the May- 
(lowers were opened in the wooils, if 
anybody could get to them for the 
roads all being under water, although 
the river was still locked in solid ice 
Irom shore to shore. And in the late 
afternoon of the second day of this 
same sweet sunshine and south wind, 
as we sat there, Jane and I, Maria 
ran in and said there was water inthe 
cellar, as much as six inches. 

"That is nothing," said I. "I shouM 
think there would be, after such a 
melting of snow and such a raining of 

"it's more likely it's the Ian<l suck- 
ing up the river, miss, said Mari.i. 
"The river's iust raging full under its 
icecoat, I sliouldn't wonder, and is 
letting itself out through the land." 
.And as she spoke there came a great 
shock and thrill, a rumble, a roar, 
and a mighty burst of sound. 

"CJreat mercy, miss!" cried Jane, 
"it's the ice crackins find rendingfrom 
shore to shore. I never he-aivl t lie like 
before, many springs as I've lived be- 
side it." ;Vnd before she had done 
speaking the soum^ came again— the 
sound oi great guns, the trembling of 
an earthquake. 

"It is an earthquake," said I. "It 
must be. But eartlupiakes up here 
don't amount to anythinL'." 

"That's no earthquake," cried Jane. 
And then we sat there an hour or 
iiiore, looking out on the river, and 
listening to the sounds, and woncler- 
ing, and telling stories ofearthquakes, 
and hardships, and what not, curd- 
ling our blood as we talked. An<l at 
last Thomas came in; he had been 
down the lane to the highway, and a 
person who had come from up coun- 
try had told him that the freshet was 
on the river, and the h'ljih water had 
carried away Ford's mills, a dozen 
miles above us. 

"Hut how can it do that?" .said I. 
"How can there be a freshet where it's 
all ice?" 

•'Just it is all ice, miss." 
said Thomas. "The streams are full 
up-country, and the frozen river down 
here is givinu the w.iter no outlet. 
Half the country between here and 
there'll be afloat before morning." 
And then came the dull roar and rum- 
ble, theshock, thetliriil, the explosion, 
once more. 

"Why. this is terrible," said I. "It 
seems as if elemental thiu'^s were at 
work; as if the earth was splittingand 
openiui:." And while wo waited and 
shivered, as one after another 
of the great explosions came, the 
door opened so quickly as 



to make us start, and Air.'- 
ran in, her face as white as ashes. 

"A me.s.senger has just gone gallop- 
ing by," she gasped. "My husband 
met him. He s.ays the dam at the 
falls has been carried away, and the 
niayor at Fallstown has sent word by 
him to the mayor of Harborbar to 
look out for his bridges." 

"And the explosions," said Bryan, 
joininc u.s, for we were all looking out 
now, in the late twilight, at the long 
glass door opening on theriyer, above 
which a j)urpling mist was hung, "is 
the Fallstown people trying to break 
up the ije below them with dynamite. 
I guess we are in for it." 

"I don't know what we are going to 
do," cried Mrs. Sawyer. 'Of course 
the moment the ice breaks up and 
20e3 sweeping down it will make for 
the first outlet, and that is on these 
grass lands— running in here on the 
very first low shore along the whole 
course of the river. It is terrifying. 
If it were only daylight I wouldn't 
mind it so much. We could see our 
way. W«j could see what was coming. 

We should know where 
what to do. But vn the> di 
htul better come over to our boiMti, 
Nau. and whatever we do we wflfcaJwf^i^-»j 
^»'o together. Merciful poweis! what 
was that?" 

It WHS only the wind cominp! mi— 
that slro-'.ig, sweet south wind. It 
liad broken" a bough from the old olio 
that had fallen on the house, and at 
the same moment the la^t explosion 
of the dynamite sounded. Hut it Was 
enough. Mvb. Sawyer's Words Were 
ringing ih my ears. 'In the dark all ttt 
once 1 thought I could .see the torrent 
of broken ice, the great blocks 
and sheets of poi'ited jaggrid ice; lift 
ing thcrtiselves Into One iiiigc ,<\-all 
and swi-eping round the beml and uij

Fasliioiialilu of Flowers. 

The New York correspondent of th< 
Springfield I'nion spe.aks of the fash- 
ionable uses to which flowers are noM 

'Phe business of florists twenty and 
even ten years .ago was rather poor 
compared with the immense orders 
they now receive. Flowers are always 
fashionable, and arc constantly groW' 
ing in demand. Of, every funer- 
al, wedding, and ball reception is 
bountifully supplieil. There is nevei 
a fine dinner given in New York with 
out a counterpiece tor the table ol 
Mowers and corsage bou(|uets for th( 
women, and boutonnieres for the men. 
A woman who sits in a box at the op 
era always has her bou(|uet. Men 
after five o'clock wear flowers in theii 
buttonholes every day; that is, if they 
are society men, also a great many 
who are not, but who likt 
flowers. Col. Robert G. Inger- 
soil, Daniel Douirherty, ami Jo 
uqiiin Miller wear tlowers, for theyar« 
specially fond of tlu'in. .Ne.arly every 
member of the stock exchange has a 
llowt-r, anrl most men liave a distinc 
tive flower. 1 know a man who never 
wears anything but a spri'.; of sniilax, 
of the tiniest leaves; another alway.- 
wears violets; another mignonelti'; 
still another lilies of the valley; anoth- 
er a sm.ill yellow llower, and a cer- 
tain Well-known man about town a 
carnation pink. So theie are hun- 
dreds of way.s in which to use flowers. 
W'omeii .are fon<l of using them at 
their regular weekly receptions, and 
as a medium of Ir.vo they are invalua- 
ble. They are olten worth ten time.s 
their weight in gold. How many ol 
love's contracts have been consum- 
mated with flowers! Tiiere is a new 
rose thatis very f;ishionable thisyear, 
called '•her majesty." It is very larg^ 
and full, of a pinkish white. A lead- 
ing florist has had his window tiled 
with them the jtast week, and so 
great were the crowds to look at them 
that a policeman was necessaiy to 
make the people moveon. ••They art 
so perfect, they look as if they must 
be artificial, there isn't a blemish on 
one of them," remarked a woman; 
paradoxical, but still a fact. The 
price of roses is .S20 each. Ber- 
ry Wall, a young man, who is some- 
times called the "king of t ho <ludes," 
bought one of these rose's rerently; 
certainly not for himself; they arv too 

The PnKSP of Army Life. 

From the New York Trilnino. 

Richa'd Smith, of the Cincinnati 
Commercial tJa/.ette, was chattinc 
abont Mr. Blaine's visit to his daugh- 
ter in the Indian Territory, where her 
husband, Lieut. Col Coppinger, i-* sta- 
tion, nnd he referred to the avidity 
with which young women in Washi'-g. 
ton seek alliance witii army otiicers, 
only to be disappointed when theii 
husbands are ordered to front iri 
posts. Said Mr. Smith: "One of oui 
Cincinnati young ladies was married 
to an army othcerin Washin::ton. ami 
rould never tire of writiiii; home to 
her people about the wonders ol 
Wa-ihington society. P^verythins was 
lovely for a couple of seasons. Then 
her husband was ordered to I he West, 
and for two years I doubt if I here was 
a day that some one of the members 
of the fandly did not receive a doleful 
and comp'aining letter from her. It 
is pretty hard on a young girl to be 
shuntecl oil like that. I went to Gen. 
Sherman to see if something could not 
be done to bring her husband nearer 
the center of civili/,;ition. The Gen- 
eral was agreeable enough to listen to 
me, but when it came to the cpiestion 
of doing anything I might a* well have 
tried to remove a rock. 'Why,' said 
he, 'all these younu fellows must take 
their chances at hard work ami light 
work alike. There seems to be some- 
thing about their brass buttons and 
their uniforms that sets the girls 
cra/y. It is just as well for a yonn- 
woman to get a taste of frontier lift 
once in a while as it is for the men. Il 
makes it understood that the army 
business is not all brass buttons and 
uniforms.' "

treat me. He 8:iid 1 miv'ht try Cod liver oil if I 
like-d. as that ■was tho only thing that could juLcoi- 
bly have any cumfivo power over consumption s"» 
far advanced. I tried the Cod liver oil as a lust 
tnmtmeot, but I was so weak I could not keep it 
on my stomach. My hu.'sband, not fet-ling salislied 
to give me up yet, though ho had bought for mo 
everything he saw advertised for my complaint, procured n quan- 
tity of your ' Golden Medical Discovery.' I took only four bottles, 
and. to the surprise of everybody, am to-day doing my own work, 
and am entirely free from that terrible cough which hnrra.-ised mo 
night and dav. I ha vo been aniiet*-d with rlieumatiKin torn mmilx'r 
of years, ami now fetd so much b<^tt<T that I l)elieve, with a con- 
tinuation of your 'Golden Medical Discovery,' I will be restored 
to perfect health. I would say to those who are falling a prey to 
that terrible diseaso consumption, do not do as T did, take every- 
vhing else first; but tak<! tho 'Golden Medical Discovtry' in tho 
early stages of the di8<'ase, and thereby save a great deal of suf- 
fering and bo restored to health at once. Any i)erson who is 
still In doubt, need but write me, inclosing a stamped, 8<-lf- 
addresfwjd envelope for reply, when the foregoing statement will 
be fully substantiated by me."

The first cold coin o! the United 
States was made in 1795. 

A whole y far has t lapsed since the 
Chicago anarchists perpetrated their 
awfnl crime, and they are app.irent'.J' 
no nearer to punishment than they 
were at the outset of <heir murderous 
enterprise. Tljc sui)reme court has 
under considrration a motion for new 
trials, and no one seems to know 
when the decision will be rendered. 

j Nearly 12,000 {(crsons left Ireland 
last month for this country and Can- 
ftda, and the Ma3' eniii^ration is cer- 
tain to dwarf that of April. The 
Poles, Bohemians, Italians, and oth- 
tr races that have heeii Kainini» on the 
Celts lately, will have to bestir them- 
tielves to beat suchastream ofsettlera 
as that which Erin is pouring into tht

on the adulteration of dairy products. 
He says: The chief adulterants used 
as far as conmiercial purposes are 
concerned are "Ojeo oil." fat from

lard," and cotton seed oil. It is ex- 
tremely easy to detect these adultJT-

On the Public Sir vice Review a new 
weekly published by the Harpers, Ad- 
iniral Torter predicts that within two 
years "our people will demonstrate 
to the world that they are capable ol 
doiuLi all their own shipbuilding, not 
only for private individuals, but for 
the government as well, and that, 
not withstamliny the boasted suprem- 
acy of Great IJritian, we can turn out 
as t;ood work and furnish better 
material than can be found in .any 
part of Europe, except, perhaps, 
Sweden. " 

The New York S;iturday half-holi- 
day bill has been suited by the gover- 
nor. No one is likely to obj.'ct to the 
act becoming a law. as its provisions 
amount to little more than su:;ge.s- 
tions. save that one causinj» public 
ollicea to be closed. In future cm- 
]iioyers and employes can arrange as 
to whether no distinction shall be 
made between one day and another. 
As a sample of permissive legislation 
the bill is perfect. It really enacts 
that if mutually convenient and agree- 
able business may be suspended on 
Saturday afternoon. 

' The understanding of people in gen- 
eral is that Russia, head-over-heels in 
debt, finds it dilficult to money 
to keep the wheels of ;;overnmeut 
moving. The history of the most 
recent attempt at Ht. Petersburg to 
raise money disproves this and indi- 
catesquite a different state of facts. 
It w.-is at first i)roposod that the new 
poplar loanshould be about .$30, 000,- 
OOO. Subscriptions were called for, 
and on the 12th ultimo it was an- 
nounced that ten times the sum re- 
(piired had been otTered. Three days 
later dispatches from St. Petersburg 
stated that the enormous sum of §1,- 
200,000,000 had been olTered.and that 
the gnvernment would take only $00,- 
000,000. I 

In the overshadowing interest of 
the Irish struggle, a bill now before 
the English Parliament that aflects 
one of the most characteristic of P'ng- 
lish institutions has escaped much 
attention in this country. It is the 
so-called Land Transfer bill, wliich 
lias passed its second reading in the 
House of Lords, of which one of the 
chielly noteworthy cllects is the for- 
jnal and final destruction of the prin- 
ciple of primogeniture in English law. 
While largely concerned with certain 
far-reaching improvements of detail 
in registration, conveying and prov- 
ing titles, the Land Tran.sfer bill pro- 
vides fin.illy that land in case of in- 
test. -icy shall be inherited in no wise 
diHerently from personalty, and for- 
bids in luture the entailing of real es- 
tate. With these provisions it puts a 
conclusive limitation to the devices 
by which great estates have been so 
irrevocably held together for cen- 
turies, and by which land has been 
made the perpetual barrier of the 
classes against the masses from gener- 
ation to generation.

Washinoton, Spooial Toloyraui, May 18.— 
The Interstatn ooinnds.iloti ba.« ni'.tbcrif ed 
the piiblli«ati(»rt df d letter a^ to tlio iutor- 
Wctaiiyii Ipf wtilch tlicro cannot bo two 
'opinions, 'j'he letter is addressed to ( 
TratMc Mannifcr Hanley, of the Minnesota k 
Northwestern road, who had complained by 
tele((raph tliat his petition asking for ruliof 
from the operations of tb«t fourth olui^se of 
the act had dot bi-cd complied with, and ro- 
ftueKtihg that Nt>eody action Kbduld be taken, 
ns his roM,fra« being gj;eatlv injured by the 
feptorceraelit of the law. Tile letter pt the 
coTninis.slon is written isvidenco that all 
roads under Ul^e cireumstanc !s and Uie pub- 
lic generally may umierstand the position of 
live comnuRsioners with respect to the law. 
,, The following is the language of the coui- 
iiVAsiou's letter': 

First— It is obvious that the oases the l»w 
conti'inilates in which the commission is au- 
thorlzHl to n>:ike orders for suM|icnsion are ex- 
ceptloiinl caseH; that is to s.iv. eases whose faclg 
nmke ttiein stand apart from ordin,try eases. The 
not dor.M not define them. It ilnus not "tatf! tlio 
proiinilslhat "linll ttatfjnt ietief. but it Dlalnly 
.Ihteufls Hint these uroiiiias in every case shall lie 
spec ill ami peenllar; that where only Kcucral 
rensoMs i>i>«r,^e the i;eiieral law .shall bo left to 
its ordlaarv course, however .serious may be the 
consequences in particular cases and to particu- 
lar roads and interests. 

St'O'iiid — It !■< also made p'atn i,>y the act that 
Riiy order for Ra<i» 'usion was mteudcd to bo 
bused u|ion an iiivostiuatlon, which shonkl s it- 
L-^fy the conimi.'<sion that the case was in fact ex- 
eontional, fairly within the intent of the provis- 
ion made for relief. The jurisdiction of the com- 
inission to Hiatse orders is ev ideally meant to be 
somewhat closely restricted. The comtnl.ssion, in 
its ei)ri'e>(|>ondone» and otherwise every day is 
jiiade aware of the rnvalenoe in some quarlers 
of a vau'uu notion that imwor has heen conferred 
.upon it to interfere anywhere and for any rea- 
iions satlsfaetorv to itself in order to prevent 
what it may think likely to be harmful; but you, 
of, indnlue no such ba!>eluss notion. The 
commission, as yon will auree. must tind its an- 
thority In law and not in its own ideas, riuht or 
poll y. 

Third— It must lie assnmed that congress in- 
tended the general law, in its main features at 
least, to bo a perimuenl law for the country. It 
must thersfore liaveconteiniilated that consider- 
able saerilices wonid necc"sarily be snbmltted 
to hy some parties and some interests, while 
the teneral biw was beluu establinlied, for very 
obvious reasons. It would l>e quite tmpossilile to 
introduce coniiidcrable changes in the branch ot 
the law whioh concerns 30 intimately tUc com- 
merce of the country without sehou.? cou-^e- 
quenccs to some private interests. In all such 
cases, incidentil injuries, however urcat thcv 
may be, must necessarily be borne for the tren- 
eral itood. and i( the lecixlaturc nilsjudues as to 
what the Rencral good dcinand-) it is to t>c ex- 
pected that in due time it will provide a remedy. 


to confront the commission upon its organiza- 
tion were raised upon applications forredef tiled 
by railroid companies nnder the fourth section 
ot the net, Ca-ies in which companies werj 
charglnit more (or the Bliortcr than for the lonicer 
lianl over the same line iti the same direction 
were to be met with in all parts of the country. 
The reasons for doiiiii this were tliouuht by 
bianneers in many cases alHoliitely lmi)eratiye, 
aild to toncern the Interest of the public quite 
OS much as that of the roads themselves. The 
intcriR'.s involved in the question were very 
grcit.. and the anticipation of serious injury 
trom any sudden change was in sonic qnarter-i 
ijiiite Kcueral. The i bminijisWn. therefore, had 
very earnest appeals m.ido to it in support of 
coriwrate applications for relief from boards of 
trade and other public bodies, from representa- 
tivts of larue business inttresrs which feared or 
professed to fear destruction or bankruptcy, lu 
many cases ap|>eals seeini-'d to bo m.ade in the 
belief that the probability of injury was ot itself 
nnfUcicut warr.ant for Ihe coraniission to inter- 
fere, and a relievim: order. It its scarcely 
necessary to sav to you that any such belief was 
without lenal support. The crouiid for suspen- 
sion .inywhere of its ordinary oi>era- 
tious would not in fact be made cround 
for relief without civiui; the commis- 
sion such eeneral dispensing jiower 
as would not Ijo consistent with sound princi- 
ples of (loverninenl. CoUKross hjis not iiitimatcd 
a pnriMise to u'lro such power. If the law in its 
I fteneral operHlions were to prove gener.illv and 
equally mischievous In all dtreetlons, commis- 
sion, instead of having greater power for th.".t 
reason would on the other hand have no jwwer 
of suspension whatever, for the simple, plain 
reason that tlicre wonld then Ije no excoptional 
cases for it to act upon. Therefore no o.ises 
would be referred by the act. to its judgment: 
bnt uniform etieets wore of course as far from 
ttoing possible! as they were from i)oinc contem- 
plated. There must and will bo excuptionul 
cases. In the absence of any speciticatUJn of 
i these in tlie aor. itself tlie commission was 
I obliged to determine as best it miuht whnt casus 
were probably in the mind of couorress when 
I was provided for. It also fouud it.solf confronted 
with the question whether railroads mieht de- 
termine for themselves, but at their i)eril, 
whether In any particular case the circum- 
stances and coiidi:i'ins were so far dilTeront as 
to justify a grea.e chart'o for the shorter hiul. 
or whctlier only upon and In view of such differ- 
ent circumstances and conditions thecommis- 
sio.i was empowered to net. mspenslon author- 
ized by the act was to bo o dered alter investi- 
i:ation. This was pluiulv detcrmiued by the act 
itself. The commission, however, deemed it 
wi."e to irrant some temporary orders on investi- 
gation not as comiileto as it expects to tinally 
make. This was done In the belief that no cuii- 
slderable mischief could follow from allowinx' 
thenxisilni; conditions of thimrs to remain i'or 
a brief period, whether then suffered to stand or 
not, and that harmful results from a sudden 
cnaime in the law miuht thereby to some 
extent be averted. This, of course, .also Kavc 
the commission such opportunity lor 
careful Kludy of the system which 
concress undertook to reform as 

would otherwise have been wantins. This 
method of proceedini; tho comniJHsiou at the 
lime believed h.vl iiu|)ortunt advantages and 
still believes will conduce to the test results in 
tho end. You speak strongly and earnestly ol 
reasons for (.'raniinif your applicatiou, but in 
order to warrant it Ixdng irranted it is not 
enouL'ti that the application, it considered by It- 
self, iijipears to have merit.s. The commission 
must consider in each cise what effect eivlni; re- 
lief to one ai pi leant will have upon other inter- 
ests, aiKl your kuowlcdite of r.iilroad matters 
mnst enable you to perceive that in some sec- 
lions of country the urauting of one application 
may so nff ct the interests of other roads as to 
create a n.'cessiiy for like relief to several m»re; 
the .satlKtaction of one claim beifettins otlicr.s 
equally meritorious, until, if nil are satlsfled, 
tho e.xeciition beeoni^-s tho rule; liut when such 
Is tho result, the probable reasons for decllniiis 
to make anv tempor.ary order are very conclu- 
sive. The commission caun.1t consent delibnr- 
ately to eater upon a hlirhway where, 
to all appearance, there will be no halt- 
ing pl.-ico within tho limits of it 
lawful jurisdiction. If the general suspcnslim 
of Ions and .short haul clause is not to be made 
by a simile comprehensive order, neither should 
tho sanio result, be reached or approached by 
arsntlnK successive orders in cases. 
In whitever tho commission may do. it must 
keep in view tho preservation of the ceneral 
rnlo. It is not our purpose in this commuuica- 
tlon to cypress any opinion to what ousht to bo 
the final conclusion uixm your application. The 
caiumission is not vet prepared to nivo its de- 
cision, and the |iuri) ise of this answer to your 
tfloBraiii is merely to place before you some of 
the reasons which up to this time have pre- 
cluded definite action. That injury results to 
parties interested in your road or to any other 
IHsrsons, Is sineerely reirrettcd. and your licllcf 
that such is the ease will l>! kept in mind as a 
reason tor .iction as prompt as chall seem con- 
sistent with duty. In these views the whide 
commisfion concurs.

in spite of Col. Lament's declaration that it 
would all be left to iJecretary Lamar, and but

Whether the secretary will eventually suc-

The Trade of La<it TTcek. ' 

n. O. Dun <t Co., in their weekly trade 
Review of the Ulst say: The most import- 
ant news of tho week if confirmed i.s that 
the interstate commerce commission will 
revoke all temporary siisi)ensions of the 
haul clause, terminating them .Inly I. Tho 
revolution in business must therefore pro- 
gress until its full effects have been real- 
ized, .'^ome of them are seen in the con- 
tracts taken l>y tho Canadian Pacific to 
move eastward the wool crop of California 
und ten million pounds ot sugar, and in 
tho marked revival of shipments aroiiml 
the Horn. Others appear in the ilecline of 
trade nt the larger centers of distribution 
and inanulaeturc, and an increase of dis- 
tribution at smaller towns, with the up- 
springing of new niHiiiifartiiring works at 
many localities. of the labor trou- 
bles seem to grow out of a narrowed field 
for the distribution of products. There- 
ports are still generally encouraging, with 
no instance iif uniisiial/lelay in collections. 
Where business i.s deemed dull it is, in ev- 
ery case, iironoiinced larger than at th7 
same season last year. 

Arrcit of the MarqaU De Mores. 

The Mar(]uis Do Mores wae arrested in 
New York on an order issued by .Iiidge 
Donoliiie, based upon the allidavit otSam- 
uel (irimsliAw to the effect that, in his be- 
lief, tho marquis was about to leave tho 
country, and had disposed of all his pro- 
perty with intent to defraud his creditors. 
.Mr. Grimshaw has a suit pending against 
De Mores for breach of contract. 
He claims that lie contracted to 
assist the niari|uis, or the Con- 
sumers' Meat company, to obtain contro 
of the retail butcher stores in N"w York, 
and was to be paid in stock and made a 
director of the company. He alleges that 
he carried out his part of the agreement, 
and sjient large sums in advertising the 
great cooperative scheme, biU has found 
that the marquis had no syndicate ol syn- 
dicate of capitalists backing him as claim- 
ed, and that the whole scheme hail fallen 
through. Ho tliorclore seeks to recover 
damages. The mar(|uis furnished |2,500 
bail and was released. 

llerrditarf Influpncpa. 

Dr. Maya, superintendent of the Stockton 
Inaanc asylum, California, says that one- 
third of the population (the foreign bfirii), 
produce two-thirds of ihe insane, and yet 
the proportion of insane in California i« not

that the prime caiisesof iuHuiiity areiiiti-iii- 
perance and neglect of the lans of health. 
"It is in the spcoiid generations that the evil 
works its most harm. One-l;alf of the insane 
andperha|).s more, owe their derail geineiit to 
hereditary intliieiices, indicating tin unres- 
rial taint or preflisposil ion. The families of

It was an old French chateatiofi thf 
oanks of the Loire; and when it was 
■iiHt built, or conquered, by the ances- 
tors of the Comte dc Maupas.saut, no 
t)ne knew. But the beautiful dotnain 
Jt .^^eaujolais had descended to the 
Miiupassaiit?? fnr ^nturies in an un- 
liroken line. 

Tke present owner, Count Guy, Was 
perhjii« tl)^ and proudest 
)f his race, .is he wna also the last. 
His only child Blanche, a Jltt^e ({irl 
ibout ten years old, was the sole 8<r 
on of thftt once numerous and pow- 
>rful family, and Vi\'nt affection her 
•athcr had was lavisliod iipoiv her. 
But, like all the Maupassants, )ie was 
^old-hearte(^ and haiiglity, and when 
iiis wife, whom he had ni.irried from 
notives of interest, droopetl, faded, 
and died, ih the uncongenial atmos- 
[)her(i of the old fhateau, he uave her 
ccant ni.Turning. 

As for the little Countess, she lI.^d 
her governess and her bonne, and, be- 
'ng e.\tremly wilful, wa.=; allowed to do 
pretty much as she pleased. Her 
father, who spent the greater part of 
his time in Paris, wj»s quite content, 
on his visits to tho chateau, to see 
ills beautiful little daughter healthy 
Hnd hapjiy, andthe^-reatest little de.s- 
pot in the household, which was 
wholly submissive to her TriWest 

What a life she led theml She re- 
belled H;^ainst the constant watchful- 
ness of governess and maids, and 
nothing delighted her more than to 
•un away from them, and pass long 
ours in wandering alone through the 
ileep forests and broad fields of 
Bcaujohiis. Her governess, a good. 
Indolent woman, was in utter de- 
spair at these escapades. 

"But, mademoiselle, I forbid you 
to go alont!" she cried. "It is not 
comme 11 f;iu* for the de 
^L•lup.assallt to wander about alone, 
lik": one oi the common rhildien." 

"Then I wi.-^h 1 was a common peas- 
ant child!" the little lady cried, stamp- 
ing her feet angrily. "They have got 
.Miildien to play with them, aind 1 ve 
;ot nobody bnt you and Bonne 
IVIarie; and yofi arc oki, old, and you 
I'an't jump nnd run and pl.qy, I will 
(;o by myself; and if you watch me or 
try to follow me, madame, I will go 
outside the gate and run away to 
Pari.s. There now!" 

Poor Madame Duloc shook and 
shivered at this threat. She knew the 
I'hild would keep her word, and then 
what would happen? .\s for punish- 
ing her refractory charge as she de- 
served, that she knew was utterly im- 
possible, and would cost her an easy 
and lucrative situation. So she 
weakly strove to compromise. 

"If you would only take Celine, 
mademoiselle, then you might st.iy 
out .as long a.'* you please." 

"But I am runniiigaway from Celine 
and everybody!" she cried impatient- 
ly. "1 hate to be watched, and if you 
will do it, I will run away. 1 will go 
where I choose." 

Poor Madame Duloc raised licr 
hands and eyes in de.spair, but before 
this will go she knew she was power- 
less. See did what nhe could; she ex- 
acted n promise from Blanche that 
she would iu'vcr go beyond the park 
Catcs. Williil anil ungovernable as 
the little Countess was, she had never 
broken her word, so iNKadfime Duloc 
was forced to yield the point. She 
would climb laboriously to the high 
tower, and w.atth the child through 
the fields, and until she was lost in the 
lercsses of the forest. But after .a 
time, when Blanche came in regularly, 
iillnwiiig with health and ready to 
study more s?(Uiloiisly than she had 
ever done, she ceased her espionage. 

The lonely little uirl found her life 
full of intrest now. She made Iriends 
with the birds and sqiiinels, and all 
t'le wild tbing.s of the field and for- 
est. She was a warm-hearte.l, loving 
little creature, though lier best impul- 
ses had been repressed by her .arti- 
ficial IIIV, .and it was her ureal est pleas- 
ure tost op and chat with old Theriot, 
Ihe gai'leii. r. and his .assistants, who 
were .alw.iy« bu.*y .about the urounds. 

One bp.iiitil'iil sjirinir morning, in her 
wanderings fliiough the spacious 
iaraens, Blanche came to an arch 
twined with tho fra::rant Provence 
rose, then in full bloom. They were 
hish above her reach, nor was there a 
foothold on the arch wl.ere she could 
?iimb. She looked around. Xo one 
w.vs in sight but 11 tall lad, who was 
weeding one of the bedf. 

"Hero, garcon, come and get ni» 
some roses." 

He came obediently, and gathered 
her .a larae cluster. 

"Vou are very tall," she s.aid, "to 
reaih up there. Where do you live, 
and how oiil .arc you?" 

"I am si.Ktei'n," an<l, mademoiselle, 
I live here. I am Anilie Tht-iiot." 

"Ah, you are the the a.irdener Ther- 
iot's son. I likt him," nodding her L'ravely. "He is a good man. 
He lets me pick the nectarines myself. 
Do you want a rose, Andre?" holding 
out .me, with the air of a young em- 
press. Aii'lie put out liis hand for it, 
when ;he drew it back, with a niis- 
:-hii'Vous lau;zli. 

'•(!o'ne, now. I'm going to treat 3'ou 
as nurlame does me, when she gives 
III.' bonbons, '^'ou must spell 'rose' 
before you uet it." 

Tlie's handsome face Hushed 

"lUu, mamsellr," he stammered, 
"I can't sp.-il. I don't know my let- 

"Don't know your letters, you, a 
!)!_', strong boy of sixteen! Oh, you 
iiiiist bf very lazy! Whv don't you 

"But, mamsclle, my father is too 
poor to send me to school. I wish I 
[•oiild leai 11. Ah, moil Dieii. if I could 
only learn to read, I would be so 
hap[)y!" clasping his hand, with the 
big tears in his eyes. 

"You sh.ill e.arn to read Andre!" 
Pity. and sympathy were at work in warm little heart. "I will teach 
you myself. Meet iiieto morrow inoin- 
in2 .at the siiiiiiiier house on the lake. 
I '.viil biing books, and 1 will teach 

'Vou, niam?e!le!" Andre cried stu- 
[)e|i<d. If an angel from he.aven had 
(iVtied to teacii him, he could not 
li;i\e been iiioie asionished than at 
this coniliv la'.sion from his beautiful 
in le chntel line. 

"And why not? Of course I shall 
^ot tell Madame Duloc or anybody. 

for theV* wmild make such a fuiw. But 
be in the summer-house to-morrow." 

'Tf course Andre did not failtoobey. 
He nevef fireamed of disputing her or- 
ders, and the Io<l was wild to learn. 
Blanciie was an exacting and impa- 
tient little teacher, but Andre was bo 
bright and eager that in live 
months lie had almost reached the 
limit of Blanche's own small nc(iuiie- 
ments. She had grown extremely 
fond of the handsome lad, so ready 
and willing to amuse her; and ns for 
him, he was her abject slave. All dis- 
tinctions of rank were forgotten in 
tine ple»sant companionship so soon 
to cease. 

One morning tiieCount returnfMl un- 
expe<-tedly from Paris, "Where is 
lilanche?" he asked Moflanie Duloc. 

"^Iivlernoiselle is out in tho 
grounds-," ffh<? said, tremulously. "J 
have sent Ctlhie f«»r her." 

"Without you, Ma<larne Duloc!" he 
said, sternly; "do you tell me my 
d.iughter la allowed to wander about 

"Ah, nion Dieu, btit 3he will let no 
one follow lier!" the poor coverOess 
cried, desperately. 

"Since yon cannot control the 
Countess, inadauK', rUow me to teM 
you, your .servi;;es are no longer neP-d- 
ed at Beaujulais." The fount »<trode 
ol? in search frf his daughter in n ter- 
rible fury. It did not lessen when, aft- 
er a half-hofJr'H search, Hhe was not 
to be found. When near the lake, he 
)i;!»r<l voices and lauahter in the little 
piimmei bous?. 

I'ushins opri! the door, he saw a 
sight which nearly .struck him dumb. 
Side by side on the bench sat the rep- 
resentative of the Maupassants and 
ft pcas.anr boy. 'I'liey were bending 
ovi^r Oie same book, and the golden 
curls 01 Blanche mingled with the 
blaek hair of lltr companion. 

"Blanche!" cri.jd the Count, in a 
voice of thunder. 

The little girl sprang to her feet, 
turning pale, but •-li.' did not tremble. 

"What are you doin-; with that 

"I am teaching him to read. pa[)a." 
The little girl's tones did nor falter, 
though she was horribly fi igbtened. 

•■'Tecwjliing him to read"' the coimt 
was so furious that his voire trembled. 

"Back with you to the ch.'teiiu.yon 
wicked child, "and i will .settle with 
you Inter. But you, you base-born, 
insoleiit peasant, I will lash you like 
the hound you are!" He raised hi-^ 
riding-whip, but Ubinche seized it and 
confronted him with a pale face and 
flashing eyes. 

"You sli.tli not strike him, papa"" 
she cried. "I made him come. He 
dared not refuse. If yovi strike any 
one, strike me, for I did it. ' 

Andre through his whole life never 
forgot that jjicture. Tho man with 
his face convulsed by fury, the little 
girl looking up with her brave eyes, 
ready and willing tosulYerin hi.s stead. 
After a minutfl the Count gee.i5ed to 
recover himself. 

"Go away from here, boy,'' he cried, 
"for if ever'l meet you again I wil! cut 
od your ears and your tongue! Yoti 
to want to learn! Bah!" 

This was no idle threat at that time 
in France. The grand Seigneur-j had 
the liberty of mutiiaiing, or t*^en kill 
ing their vassals at then' own free will, 
and the boy knew that his father's 
house was no longer safe for ht;ii. 
But his thirst for knowledge, begun 
by the lessons of his little mistress, 
led him to a Jesuit college, where his 
uncle, a prie.'it. was one of the pro- 
fessors. There he rem.ained for six 
years, while the thiinderi>i of the great 
iievolution t*ero growling in the dis- 

When Andre lelt college, the guillo- 
tine had already cut off many ot the 
greatest .and noblest names in France; 
His enlucation and abilitj- and h.atred 
of arislorney soon secured him a posi- 
tion oi contidenee with Petion, one ol 
the Kevoiutionary leadeis. 

Andre shuddered at the bloodsheci 
and violence which had turned France 
into a bul ciier's shambles, but then 
he dreamed that the outcome would 
be liberty. 

Ho had heard that the Chateau ol 
Beauiolais had been burnt to tlje 
ground, and the count and hi- daugh- 
ter had escaped. A\"heie the count haii 
gone ho knew not ani cared less; but 
he knew that Blanche ha<l been con- 
cealed by old Theriot, his f.ather, who 
had been loyal to his young mistress 
in Her hour ot peri!. He liad nevei 
seen her since that fateful d.ay when 
they had been surprised by her father, 
but his era tit tide .and almo.-^t ador.i 
tion had never lessened. One day in 
Potion's oMiee, he overheard a few 
wo.d."< which made his heart 

"So that old satan. I>e Maiipas- 
s.ant, is in the last batch of prisoners? 
They wil! all 'kis.s the basket' at noon 

"tiood!" Petion answered; "has 
the viiier any lirooii?" 

"One daughter, .as handsome anil 
insolent .as an nristocr.ate can bo 
She is hidiu:., tiiey say, with one ol 
her old servants; but that blood 
hound Cares.s(> goes in search of her 
to-morrow. He never f.iils. Caresse 
does not, and she will be in L.i Force 
before twenty-four hours." 

-As soon as I he visitor left, .Vndre 
presented himself before Pel ion. 

"(ieneral." he said, "I want a pa.**- 
to absent myself for days, an i 
to go where I wish. Give me on'', 
too, at I he s.ime time, for my sister. ' 

"Aha. 'fheriot. of course, my boy! 
Somethiu'.! for the good of the St. i to, 
hein? Good partriot that you are! 
Describe j'oiir sister, and let Xiccl 
there dr.av,' uj) the ])asses." 

I have no snaee to tell of Andre'? 
journ"y to Beauiolais, and how, in 
disguisi', Blaiuhc escapeil with him to 
the nearest se.iport, where betook 
jiass.age for her in .a vessel bound for 
America. .'Vi'dre had a < ousin .settled 
on fheTeehe in Louisiana, and it wa? 
to these humble folk the Countess dc 
.^Iaupassi^nt was jzoing. 

"Farewell, mademoiselle," said the 
youu',' man, as they stood toizether 
on the deck of the vessel. "You h.ivc 
moiny for your pressnt wants, and I 
will lorward more to you. Perh.aps, 
loo. I m.iy come .and see you." 

Blanche raised her face all stroam- 
ing with tears. 

"Come with mc now, .Xmlre!" sht 
?ried, in her e>ld impetuous m.aniur. 
"How can I go alone, alone to a 
strange land?" 

He went. Two ye.ars after this, the 
voung Countess m.arried thotjarder- 
er's son, and their union ji happy 
one. Their desceiid.ints are ntime.-oi s 
now on the Tei he. .and you hear

From Harper 8 lUinar. 

We had been eni;at;t'tl, Mark .nml I, 
since we were babii-s, so to say; that 
is, when he was still in knickorbock- 
.ers, aii<l I was just ont of bibs, we 
had (hvidetl that when wc pvw up ami 
had a house of our own, it was to be 
our own, hisi ninl mine, and there we 
were to live tOi;ether and live alone; 
and if the olieif of our diet there was 
to be apple-tarts anil bulterscotchcs, 
that was our own aflair. 

It is a thousand pities that it was 
about that that all tlie rout 
hapi^ened. For the fact is, 1 had the 
ptrouijest sort of a will, and so had

it wasn't that house at all that I 

For, you see, the spot where I lived,

ieathery and always Ireniblin:^ and

grass fields lying low and even with the

when the sun shone, and the sky w-ir- 
blue, and tho south wind was softly 
blowins;, one seemed as near heaven 
livinu there, as it is given one to be on 

There were quite a number of dwell- 
ingdiouses her*r, where the oorp«r.s ol 
several fit tilt,' great rivt'v larms con- 
ver<»tHl, so that, aUhouuh their latid 
stretched out in different directions, 
the buildiMCi clustered together like a 
%ill,iu't, and we always lame and went 

(.Inely in each ot}it'rs housf.s, and 
lew each other's concerns, and were 
MOre like ime lart;e family than stran- 
i^ers: and I loved my neighbors, every 
one, and didn't want to i;o away from 
them. And wh.en it came to the ques- 
tion of marrying and goiui; away, I 
was simply iletermined that Iwouldn't 
^o aw.ay. but that Mark should couio 
down to this little CJarden of Kden, 
where I knew every tint of tho ripe 
grass on the meadow, every sparkle 
f the water, every lleei i- of cloud up- 
11 the blue of heaven. 
"And why not, Mark?" I urged, 
"Her'" is this immense farm, a really 
preat property, and would you leave 
it to t.ike care ot itself, and we go to 
live two miles away on your fatlnr'r; 
place, that bleak, lonesome rock up 
in the ,iir, shut in by .i pine forest, 
like a great fortress — a prison, a real 

• '"It isn't .1 prison to me," said Mark, 
"It is the brightest s])ot in the worhl.- 
lt would be if you were in it. Nan." 
My r<al name is I'amela; but that is 
the way peojilo always used me. 

"An<l uo neighliois there'. " le.xclaim- 
cd— "nobody to run in of an evening, 
nobo'ly to talk to over the g;irden 
wall, nobody to borrow of, nobotly to 
show yoiu' new things to, nobody i! 
you'n- sick. One might as well be 
biu-itd alive. I always thou^jht i^o." 
'•1 should want nobody but you. 
Nan, t WH were nmrried ami that 
our liome. It would be simply para- 

'It wouldn't be paradise to me 
without any w.itcr to see. T never 
liked the verso in the bibleabout there 
being no more sea. I'retty heaven 
that, without any sea to look 
at! I couMut live without my 
river. Tve .-ilways had it run- 
ning by, nmning up or nuniing down, 
coiuiu".; from somewhere, goingto some- 
where, lite and mot ion. I always look 
out ttie lirst thing in the morning to 
>iee if its still there, and I listen for it 
at'niuht. And it makes two skies by 
niLiht -one above and one below — with 
5-t;vrs ilown in tho under-world; and 
Ihrnbyday the color, the chanizing 
li::ht and rolor, nnn the pushing of the 
t'de, taking you right into the myster- 
ies. Oh, It's st;ignation without the 
riverl I'd as lief be <lead." 

"And I think just as much of the 
pine woods," he said, "'with the ever- 
lasting nturnuir of the boughs. And 
wlii-ii a wind bi\;ins to blow, long be- 
fore we feel it down below, the troe- 
to[).T know it, and are whisperinu 
about it to one another, like old 
witches brewing a storm." 

"And there's nothing but a patch 
a of g.arden there in your fathers old 
place," I went on, without heeding; 
"and here are these long, rich grass 
lands. .\nd how in tho world are we 
to manage a farm two miles away 
from it, I should like to know?" 

"I know." said Mark. "Kasily; 
just as you do two rods away." 

"It's impossible," said 1. "You 
don't understand anything about 
the oversight and care that a great 
farm needs if you think that." 

"Well, we could sell the farm you 

"Sell the farm!" 1 cried, starting up. 
"My father's, my gr.indfather's, my 
great -i^randfather's — " 

'•Your Noah's your Adam's—" 
"How do you dare talk so to nie, 
Mark Myers, about niy home!" I 
cried, more ve.xed and more. 
"I shouldn't think you had called 

my homo a prison and a dungeon," 
nc' retorted. 
"Well, it is! the gloomiest, the—" 
"Now hu.-^h, my darlint;; hush, you 
little vi.xen," said Mark, laughing, 
with his hands on my lips, "or you'll 
tay something you'll be sorry for." 
"You've said .somethin-.: you'll be 
8orry for," I cried— "calling me a 
vixen. I may be a vixen, but 
if you were a gentleman— But 
"^ fho Myerses always were tyrants, 
and I'lii glad I've found you out in 
time — so calm and so cool, and so 
.Txed in your own way. And I'll nev- 
er, never, eo and live in your old pris- 
on-house," I cried, growing angrier 
nnd angrier. Heaven only knows why. 
"And you may just whistle for your 
jjog, and go there yourself, and go 

alon*. I never want to Bee your face 
a-jam." .Vnd before he' could gnvsp 
me and prevent me, I Iwid Hashed in- 
to the house, and had shut and bolt- 
ed the door. 

He waited then; he waited, I should 
think, an hour. And I sat inside, 
Innniih; with anger, and with an un- 
conscious sense ot shame, very likely, 
and fv bitter disappointment, and 
IK wild, unnamed fear. And at last ho 
rostf slowly and looked at the win- 
dows, and turned away and called old 
i{oland,and went slowly down the lane. 
And ho noTcr came back. I could 
see walking along, ever so slowly, 
m the clear moonlight, with the dOg's 
nose in his hand, till the road turned 
into the wood that mounted the hill. 
And when ho had gone 1 just threw 
myself on the Uoor, and all but dis- 
solved in my mad te-'^rf.. Andldidn't 
know what th.o \ea:s were for— wheth- 
er for tear of losing Mark, or for fear 
of losing my home, or for fear of giv- 
ing up my will; but it seemed to me 
that the end of the world had as good 
as come. 

We were both orphans, we both had 
these great proi)erties, and wo had 
both better have been beggars. 

That was June, and the lull moon. 
1 didn't sleep any that night— 1 hard- 
ly know why: a presentiment of evil 
kept me waking, although l was so 
tired. I remember that moon now, 
h.inging in the purple sky, with her 
wide wings, like a great boding t;host. 
Kvory time I looked out, there she 
was. l?y .uul-by she biMjan to frighten 
me, and I shut iier out, but lay awake 
all the same, my mind in a wild whirl. 
The next evening, in the long after- 
glow ot tho sunset, I tripped down 
the lane to the wood, sure that I 
should meet him, as 1 had always 
(lone, on his way to me; but the shape 
I Ik-uI been used'tosee bouiulini: down 
the path I ilid not see again. I went 
close to the shadow of the wood, but 
only old Koland came and put his 
nose in my hand, and wailed with nie 
while I wait Oil, and went back with 
me a little way when I went back. It 
did not o.Tur to me to think that 
where was his m;ister was not 
far distant. And I went down the 
lane no more. 

After that, theu, 6\yc (Vy crept by, 
and aaoi:her, »ind iife continued in 
the old wfty. and all the business of 
the ureat farm thrive I in the hands 
of Jiryan, the directing overseer, n.fA 
all seemed to bo me'.*? idleness. The 
moving ni'vthihes were humming all 
dov h'l the meadows, and the huge 
loads of fragrant hay came laboring 
into the b.arns, and thunder-clouds 
made jianics, and the lightning fell, as 
it always did on the wet low grounds, 
and burned one or two hay starks; 
and then the pupd.d.ows went down 
the river for the salt hay, and came 
bavk, days afterward, with their dark, 

him. Now he sat by the fireside there, 
in the deep chair, reading, now ho was 
busy with maps and pictures at tho 
table; now, in the big bay, the moon- 
light, that had pale green retlexions m 
it cast up from the emerald depths of 
the woods below, fell about him. 
I dare say that, in reality, busy 
about th« place and his affairs of one 
sort or another, and doing his best 
to live and to forget, lie was very little 
in that toonu but there 1 chose to 
place him; and it grew strangely sweet 
to me, and every moment when 1 
could sit down alone my l*»ncy look 
mo aiid I sat down in that room, or 
else I wandered up and down the 
great staircase an<l the hall where his 
people's jjortraits hung; bu' I rJftays 
came back ngain to tho hearth of tno 
long dim room if it were day, to the 
dancing lire-cast shadows there if it 
were night, and the place grew dearer 
and dejirer to m« every hour, and I 
upbraided myself in thoughts too bit- 
ter for speech for tho lolly and angry 
temper th.'it had shut me out of it, 
that had drawn comparison between 
that ancient lofty place and this low 
and tiresome stretch of nothing but 
common grass lands, between that 
manor and this plain farm-house, al- 
though in real truth my farm house, 
was quite its e(pial at any other time. 
But tlie new yefir came in without a 
sign from Mark or a siiin from me; 
and the country was white with snow, 
and the river ice was strong enough to 
bear un sledges and teams of horses, 
and tiie iceboats were si)litting tho 
wind before them. It all made no 
odds to me. I wascompletely wretch- 
ed. I didn't pretend to go to church 
or to any of the society meetings; and 
if the Sawyers and Wellses came to 
me, I suppose I treated them proj)- 
erly— I'm sure I don't know— but 1 
never set my foot out-doors the win- 
ter long. . . . - 

There were fnrious storms that win- 
ter. The snow fell as I never renuin 
bered it before. Tho drifts seeiniHl t<:* 
wall us in from all the world. "A liv- 
ing tomb,'" I used to murmer. "I wish 
it were a tomb indeed, aud J in hiy 
last sleei)." Xt twenty,' our r^S, be so 
'. ery miyernblE, and at thirty, if one 
llVes so long, one can be so profane 
as to laugh at it. 

Sometimes Bryan and Thomas 
brought word of the outside regions, 
of the way peot'l'J Up-rivei' Uere sieigh- 
-iding over the tops of fences, of the 
immense snow-fall in the mountians, 
and the fears ot what would happen 
fro.ii it in the spring if there should be 
an early thaw. And I remembered 
some words that Mtirk used to (piote 
from a play he had seen, "When this 
snow melteththercshall come a flood.'' 
1 didn't care how many Hoods came. 

And so, with storm after storm, tlie 
winter wore away. .T»,nc r.r.d Tuaria at 
their hrihie-keeping task?, and I busv 

s<iuare sails set atop of their ''qiiAre ' wUh my riigmaking, hooking strips of 

leads of thatch: onU '}h*5 by one all 
the concern:* o? t ipcnihg and harvest- 
ing had theu" season, and past, and 
August was over. And Mark had 
never once been up to the lane again; 
and September had gone, and tl"! 
harvest-moon; and the hunter's moon 
had poured its silver lloods of li:;ht 
out of a areot lonely heaven; and still 
Mark *'acl never come. 

I suppose Mrs. Wells, my next 
neighbor, know all about it. And 
.Mi>. Sawyer, on the other side, of 
course knew all that Mrs. Wells did. 
They were very good to me, and they 
an<l the girls were always running in 
to see me, or sending for me -to run in 
and see them. I don't think I was 
trying to carry things oil with a high 
hand, and I know I wasn't hanging 
my head and crying over what was 
not to bo helped; I simply made up 
my mind to the inevitable. I was 
never going to have Mark beside me 
any more, and I must endure it, and 
get tlirouLih life as well as I could. 
I had this ftuin on my h.ands, and all 
the peO[»lo who had their livinj from 
it, and I must do my duty. And per- 
haps in time fate wouhl be kindfr, 
ami give me a fever or cough, and let 
me lie down and die: and he would 
come then ami look on me, and re- 
uiember b.ow I had loved him, and bo 
Kcrry- And thinking how sorry he 
would be was a ioy I hugged to my 
heart, and the only joy I had. 

But I used to long so sometimes to 
see Mark's dear face again, to hear his 
voice, just to lay my head on his 
shoulder and cry my eyes out there. 
Sometimes it used to seem to me that 
I couliln't live another minute if I 
didn't run down that lane aud up 
through the wood to the old house on 
the rock and tind him, .ind bea him to 
forgive me— fc^rgive, oh, not just that 
burst of temper, but the whole rebel- 
lion of my soul — and comeback to me; 
and sometimes I felt that I must take 
some sleeping potion that would keep 
me benumbed till the pain had \>.a-sed, 
or else must throw myself into the 
river always running by, brimmed and 
shining and indifferent. 

And I began to hate the river — the 
river that I had used to love so in the 
sunshine, all blue and silver; that I 
had loved so, dimpling in its soft grays 
in r.ainy her; where I had never 
tired of seeing the ice-boats dart along 
when it lay white under its wintiy 
mail— the river that now, in my grief 
and troulile and weariness, flowed 
past as calmly as if I tunl never seen 
it. How could it be so irresponsive, 
rolling on bright and strong and 
steady, giving me back no sympathy 
now in my sorrowful mood, giv- 
ing me even no vantage-ground? — for 
I should have had to wade into it if I 
had wanted to dro<\-n myselt. Y'es, 1 
began to hat« the river. I began to 
hate, too, these !o g, tiresome, mo- 
tionless levels of the grass lands — Oh, 
so Hat, so monotonous, so low! "One 
is simply under-gr<uind here," I said 
to niy.self. "One has really not the 
air to breathe. One becomes like 
those slugs that live under the damp 
side of .1 stone. I am under a stone 
myself. t)h, for just a breath of air 
from some point a little way up the 
sky!" I be;i,in to hate, I say, the 
long green gr.ass fields; and than I be- 
gan to hate the farm life, "It is dull, 
sordid, base work, let them say what 
they ple.ase," said I, "from the pitch- 
ing about of the barn-y.ard muck to 
the last results of it. It is all non- 
sense about its being the one noble 
occupation. So is the cook's, then, 
too." And I hated the great cattle in 
the yard, the smell of the frothing 
pails of milk, the click of the stanch- 
ions, the cheese making, tiie butter- 
packing— everything that belonged to 
all the dull round of the farm duties. 
I went jibout to ?ee the work done, 
and said a word to the maids, here, 
♦ he men there: and I went and sat 
down by my kindling autum fire, and 
felt that if I had to live here forever I 
had better die and be done with it. I 
had rather die and be done with it 
anyway, If I was never to see Mark 
any more; but then that was no new 

Do what I would, my thoughts 
would follow Mark. . Was he there 
alone in his father's house? Was he 
riding gayly round the country, visit- 
ing other houses, other girls happier, 
than I, hearing music, joining in laugh- 
ter? Or was he traveling off in distant 
regions, seein; new sights and forget- 
ting the old, forgetting the past and 
me in fresh experience? Or was he sit- 
ting at home there in the long dim 
room whose windows looked through 
the pine-wood vista over the broad 
valley and away to the blue mount- 
ains? Ko one told me; no one ever 
ventured to mention his name to me. 
But somehow I placed him there inthe 
long dim room, and there my fancy 
kept following him and hovering about 

woollen cloth through cotlee-bags, not 
because the house was not full of 
them, but because I had nothing bet- 
ter to do. For 1 couldn't read; if I 
tried my eyes swan, and I could not 
make out a word of what it was all 
about. And people went and came 
like shadows; aud the days had grown 
short, and now they grew long, and 
what did it all matter to me? 

March had come, but without a sign 
of the winter's breaking; and then at 
last April loitered on, and April suns 
began to do their work; and gradually 
the drifts of snow in the lanes and in 
fields began to settle, and to lessen 
and melt and dissapear. And Bryan 
and Thomas had to talk of the brood- 
ing hens, and watch for the l)rcaking 
up of tho river, and discuss the chance 
of the early rye and the new calves 
and the hiring of the spring hands; 
and it was all emptiness. And one 
day it began to snow, and the snow 
turned to rain, and it rAined that day 
and rained in rivers, and it rained the 
next day,and it rained till it had rain- 
ed a week— a long, dreary week that 
bade fair to end Only in deluge. And 
on Saturday the sun came out warm; 
.and when I looked, the crocuses 
bloomed under the windows, and 
Thomas said it was very like the May- 
flowers were opened in tho woods, if 
anybody could get to them for the 
rOads all being under water, although 
the river was still locked in solid ice 
from shore to shore. And in the late 
afternoon of the second day of this 
same sweet sunshine and south wind, 
as we sat there, Jane and I, Maria 
ran in and said there was water in the 
cellar, as much as six inches. 

"That is nothing," said I. "I should 
think there would be, after such a 
melting of snow and such a raining of 

"It's more likely it's the land suck- 
ing up the river, miss, saifl Maria. 
"The river's just raging full under its 
icecoat, I shouldn't wonder, and is 
letting itself out throunh the land." 
.\nd as she spok(^ there came a great 
shock and thrill, a rumble, a roar, 
and a mighty burst of sound. 

"Great mercy, mis-I" cried Jane, 
"it's the ice iracking and rendingfrom 
shore to shore. I never heard tiie like 
before, many springs as I've lived be- 
side it." And before she had done 
speaking the sound came again — the 
sound oi great guns, the trembling of 
an e.arthquake. 

"It is an earthquake," said I. "It 
must be. But earthquakes up here 
don't amount to anything'." 

"That's no earthquake," cried Jane. 
And then we sat there an hour or 
more, looking out on the river, and 
listening to the sounds, and wonder- 
ing, and telling stories olearthquakes, 
and hardships, and what not, curd- 
ling our blood as we talked. And at 
last Thomas came in; he had been 
down the lane to the highway, and a 
person who had come from up coun- 
try had told him that the freshet was 
on the river, and the hinh water had 
carried away Ford's mills, a dozen 
miles above us. 

"But how can it do that?" said I. 
"How can there be a freshet where it's 
all ice?" 

"Just because it is all ice, miss," 
said Thomas. "The streams are full 
up-country, and the frozen riverdown 
hero is giving the water no outlet. 
Half the country between here and 
there'll be afloat before morning." 
And then came the dull roar and rum- 
ble, theshock, the thrill, the explosion, 
once more. 

"Why, this is terrible," said I. "It 
seems as if elemental things were at 
work; as if the e.irth was si)littingand 
opening." And while we waited and 
shivered, as one after another 
of the great explosions came, the 
door opened so quickly as 
to make us st,art, and Mrs. Sawyer 
ran in, her face as white as ashe.s. 

"A me.s.senger has just gone gallop- 
ing by," she gasped. "My husband 
met him. He says the dam at the 
falls has been carried away, and the 
mayor at Fallstown has sent word by 
him to the mayor of Harborbar to 
look out for his bridges." 

"And the explosions," said Bryan, 
joining us, for we were all looking out 
now, in the late twilight, at the long 
glass door opening on the river, above 
which a purpling mist was hung, "is 
the Fallstown people trying to break 
up the ize below them with dynamite. 
I guess we are in for it." 

"I don't know what we are goingto 
do," cried Mrs. Sawyer. 'Of course 
the moment the ice breaks up and 
noes sweeping down it will make for 
the first outlet, and that is on these 
grass lands— running in here on the 
very first low shore along the whole 
course of the river. It is terrifying. 
If it were only daylight I wouldn't 
mind it so much. We could see our 
way. We could see what wfta coming. 

We should know where we wore and 
what to do. But in the dark! You 
had better come over to our house. 
Nan, and whatever wo do we will all 
do together. Merciful powers! what 
was that?" 

U was only the wind coming up— 
that strong, sweet south wind. It 
had broken a bough from tho old elm 
that had fallen olt the hollse, and ttt 
the samo moment the last explosion 
of the dynamite sounded. But it wa;- 
enough. Mrs. Sawyer's words Were 
rincing in my ears. In the dark all at 
oiico I thought I could see the torrent 
of broken ice, the great blocks 
and sheets of pointed jaggatl ioe, lift 
inu themselves into One huge wall 
and sweeping round the beml and iqi 
tho land, pushed by the mighty swell- 
ing of t he tide behind -niou n tin J, grind' 
ing, swecpint? nci'osr, all this low in- 
terval, over which it would crash and 
pour and How, to tind the river at a 
point below and reach the sea. Tht 
rush ol the great black cold waters 
was already upon me, the sound o! 
them m my ears, the blowing of thf 
wide dark water breath. I felt my 
self a liclplcs,'; nlra«v t)cforQ thcni. ! 
<lid not wait an instant. I nevei 
thought of the others. I was not con 
scions of any thought at all: but 1 
screamed, and turned and (hished out 
of the house and down the aiio, a.' 
fast, as breathlcsuly, ns I comd race, 
through tho mire iitid sillsh. ,ind ii^ 
the narrow load into the wood, fed 
ing still fhitt chill w.-jter breath blow- 
ing on me, liearing the terrible souiii. 
of the rasping, piling, tumbling, roar 
ing ice, and I never stopped till 1 fel! 
panting and breathless and faintiiis 
at Romebody'H f«et, with 1h»> waric 
breath ol a great stag liound in mj 
face, and was being lifted in .':Oiiie 
body's nrmsi, aiid saw when I op<ne( 
my eyes, by the light of the Voiinn yel 
low moon through the wood, tlmt i* 
was Mark, and he wils ki.ssing niewiti 
a kiss a-' long ofi the §pttce fhH'- hiu' 
sej^virrtArd 1.3, 'Oii, Alark! Mark!" 1 
cried "save me! save me! The freshet i^ 
coming; it is close upon us; we ine el 
drowning' t:\\<C me up loyour house 
to your dear oldluLrh liouse, and don' I 
let me ever leave it. Oh, Mark, I loved 
you all the tune! Take me home 
Don't let me go a'iain. Forgive me, 
love me. I don't see how you canlov* 
me. I don't see how you can lovi 
anybody so \tilfi;l r,ncl vi.^cehish and 
sellish and hateful; but oh! you must 
—you must!" 

"I am taking you home," said 
soon as he had the chance. "Do you 
suppose I will let you go a-jain? I 
shall have to forgive you. What els( 
Id there for me to do? I heard about 
the freshet. I Was jUst on my way tci 
you. We will have the niinistcr^ttp 
thi^ very evening, if wn crMi gel him, 
and you shall never so much as go oul 
of jny arms again." 

And he did. And here lam, perfect- 
ly happy in this fortress, thig prison 
on a rock, this dungeon— so hai»py 
that I have not yet been able to brin;! 
my shocked nerves to tho pass ever, 
of going down again to the grasslands, 
where Mark goes down and manages 
everything for me. 

And the freshet? Oh, to bo sure! 
Why, you see, that south wind shifted 
to easterly, and it froze again that 
night. And when it melted, it medted 
so gently that the ice went out of th« 
river without anybody's knowing it, 
And there never was any freshet.

Fnsliioiiabic of Flowers. 

Tho New York corresjiondent of th« 
8pri!i!,'titld Viiion speaks of tl>e fush 
lonnble tises to which llowera are no\^ 

'Phe busirnj?*s Of florists twenty and 
oven ten years ago was rather poor 
compared with the imniense orders 
they now receive. Flowers are always 
fashionable, ar.d are constantly grow 
ing in demand. Of, every funer 
.•il, weildin^;, and ball reception is 
bountifully supplied. Tliere is never 
a line dinner given in New York with 
out a counterpiece tor the tahle ol 
liowers aii'l corsaj;e boiKjiiets for tlu 
women, and boutonnieres for the men. 
A woman who sits in a box at the op 
era always has her boufjuet. Men 
after live o'clock wear flowers in theii 
buttonholes every day; thai is, if theji 
are society men, also a ^reat many 
who are not, but who like 
liowers. Col. UoLert G. Inper- 
soll, Daniel J)oui'herty, and Jo 
aipiin Miller wear liowers, for thcyar* 
specially fond of them Nearly ever>' 
member of the stock exchange has »i 
flower, and most men have a distinc 
tive llower. I know a m.'Ui wlio.nevei 
wears anything but a sprin of .smil.-ix, 
of the tiniest leaves; another always 
wears violets; another mignonette; 
still anotlicr lilies of the valley; anoth- 
er a small yellow flower, and a cer- 
tain well-known man about town a 
carnation pink. So theie are hun- 
dreds of ways in which to use flowers. 
Women are fond of using them at 
their regular weekly rewplioiis, and 

as a medium of kve thoy .-ire invalua- 
ble. Tlii>y arc often worth ten times 
their weight in gold. How many ol 
love's contracts have been consum- 
mated with flowers! There is a new that is very fashionable this year, 
called "her ma|esly." It is very larsji 
and full, ol a pinkish white. A lead- 
ing florist has his window filed 
with them the past week, and so 
great were thecrowds to look at them 
that a policeman was necessary to 
make the people moveon. "'I'hey art 
so jierh'ct, they look as if thi'V must 
be artificial, tiiere isn't a blemish on 
one of tlieiii," remarked a woman; 
parado.xical, but still a fact. The 
price of these roses is l?20 each. Ber- 
ry Wall, a young man, who is some- 
times called the "king of the dudes," 
bought one ol these roses recently; 
certainly not for himself; they arv too

The >'ew Florida Spnalor. 

Li tho Florida legislature on the 10th, 
tho vote for I'nited Statessenator resulted 
asfollows: I'asco.Dem., K-l; Goodrich, Kop., 
17. Mr. Pasco was declared elected. The 
senator-elect, is a native of London, Eng., 
and is about forty-eight years old. Jio 
is an American citi/.en throuKh thenaturnl- 
ination of his father hi fore he attained hi.i 
majority. He is a graduate of Harvard 
collcj-e. Un served in the Confederate 
army. Ho is now a speaker of the state 
house of re()re80iitatlvcs. He is a man of 
lair attainments an.l moderate fortune, 
but has never been distinguished in poitics 
even in his own state. His collea- 
gue, .'^enator Call. said that his 
election was undoubtedly tho compromise 
arrnnged between Perry and Hloxhnm, who 
both withdrew from tho contest. The 
election leaves good feeling in tho jiarty in 
Florida, and it is thought Mr. I'asco will 
as thoroughly rppresent his state as any of 
his )iredeccssf)rs. He succee<l8 Mr. Jones 
whose mysterious residence in I)etroit for 
a year (>r two, is a national nacndal.

The l*r<»sc of Ariii.v Life. 

From the Mew York Tribune. 

Riohrt'il Smilli, of the Cincinn.ati tiazette, was ch.ittiiiy 
fibout Mr. Blaine's visit to bis dauKli- 
ter in tlie Indian Territory, where her 
liusbainl, Lieut. Col Coppin^ef, i^sta- 
tion, and he referre<l to tha avidity 
with which younf; women in Waslii--.;- 
ton seek nili.-mje with army otiiftTx. 
only to be tlwaiipoiiited when llii'ii 
iiiisbands are ordered to frontier 
posts. Said Mr. .Smith: "One of oiii 
Cincinnati yonn<;; ladies wa.s married 
to .an .army otliceriij \V;ishinL;toii. .and 
could never tire of writing home to 
her people aboni tiie wonders oi 
Washington society. Kvei ylliini: w.i^i 
lovely for .v couple of se:isoii-i. Then 
her hu.sband was ordered to the West, 
and for two years I doubt if there wns 
a day that some one of the members 
of the family did not receive a doleful 
and coinii'ainin^ letter from her. It 
is pretty hard on a youni; qirl to be 
shunted olT like th.nt. 1 went to Gen. 
Slierman to see if somethiii'.; could not 
be done to brini: lii-r liu.>5baii<l nenrer 
the center of civilization. The (Jen- 
eial was aiireeable enoush to listen to 
me, but wlieii it came to tho qiieslion 
of doing aiu'tliing I miglit a-« well have 
tried to remove a rock. 'Why,' .'•aid 
he, 'all these youna tellows must take 
their chances at hard work .and li<iht 
work alike. There seems to be some- 
thing about tlieir brass buttons and 
their uniforms .sets the girls 
cra/y. It is just as well for .a yonn-j 
woman to get .a t.aste of Irontit^r lift 
once in a wliile as it is for the men. It 
makes it understood that the army 
business is not ail brass button?) and 
uniforms.' " 

Butte, Mont., is havini! an epidemic of 
«uifides. Within a \\eek three of the demi- 
monde h.ive killed themselvi's. l-ilsie l!ey- 
nolds, after viewing the body of Florence 
(irilhtli, anolher suieitie, told her compan- 
ions that slir would be the next victim. 
She then went to the room of a prominent 
society man, absent at the time, and with 
a pLstol blew out her brains. f>he left a 
nfite saying she was nineteen years old, 
married, and tho mother of three children, 
and re(|uestiiig that her husband. H. Far- 
rar, of I'ortland, bo notilied (d her ilenth. 
Fnniiip Mildred took a dose of morphine, 
but a stomach pump saved her. 

Tlie people of Albert Lea are endeavor- 
ing to secure the Illinois Central and the 
Des Moines \- Duhith extensions tt» their 
town, the former from Lyio and the latter 
from Des Moines. 

A So* Sli-k Pnssriicpr, 

On the ocean, cares little nliout a storm. He is 
f.oditively indifferent whether he is washed over- 
ln'ard or not. But. set l.y a wineglasvtulortuo 
of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, he feels renewed 
intercut in hi*" pei-sfinal safety. This fineoorrcc 
tive iientralijM's in hrurkish water — often eom- 
iiuisorily (iraiik on sliipt.oard, to the urevious 
detriment of he.ilth— the j«'i:iiicious iinpuritiea 
which gives rise to disorders of the stomach, liv- 
er iiml liowels. To the mariner, the tourist, the 
Wi stern pioneer and miner, the Bittei-s is iiival- 
uahle a* a niciins of protection a^ilinst nmlarin, 
when its seeils are latent in air and water. To 
the effect of overwork, mental or manual, it is 
a most reliable antidoie, and to the de'oilitated 
and nervous, it affords great and speedily felt 
relief and vi^or.
